Men arrested after chase have been in trouble before

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A manhunt yesterday ended with two people arrested and charged with multiple offenses. This is not the first time the two men have been in trouble with the law.

Wilmington Police say they were called to the Best Western Plus on Market Street Monday evening after someone reported seeing someone selling drugs out of one of the rooms. A police spokeswoman says when officers arrived a foot chase started after the two suspects took off toward the Lennon Woods Apartments.

Police arrested Kashar Hill and Rodney Tyson and charged them with several crimes including resisting arrest. Hill was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon and obstruction.

Both men have had several run-ins with law.

Tyson has previous charges of trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a revoked license.

Hill has also been previously charged with driving without a license. He is out of jail on bond.

Tyson was released from jail but was arrested again Tuesday on a parole violation.

More than a dozen officers were involved in the search yesterday.

Both men are due back in court in December.
