Placeholder Image

A man led police on a foot chase after they smelled the scent of marijuana wafting from his car.
The suspect, Zachary Chase Bryant, 23, is charged with resisting arrest, possession of drugs and, in a separate incident, initiating the process to manufacture meth.
He was arrested when his Volvo was sighted by McMinnville Master Sgt. Kenneth Seagraves as he was answering the call of a suspicious vehicle. A computer check revealed the outstanding meth warrant prompting the officer to approach the car.
“I could smell marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” Seagraves said in his warrant, noting the suspect ran away on foot as the officer approached. “After a short chase, I had to wrestle him to the ground in order to subdue him and place him under arrest.”
A subsequent search of the suspect’s car netted a metal container with marijuana inside. Police also found various pills in his car. More drugs were found on his person when he was searched prior to being placed in jail.
It was later discovered the outstanding warrant had been brought by the local narcotics unit after Bryant was implicated in a meth-making operation. Specifically warrants charging him with initiating the production of meth claim a receipt belonging to him was discovered along with a meth lab. The receipt revealed he had bought various items used in the production of meth. He was further linked to the purchase when police reviewed the video tape from the store showing him buying the items.
