The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a drug suspect who got away during a traffic stop.
Drug Task Force agents stopped a vehicle in southwest Decatur for traffic violations on Friday, according to a post on the sheriff’s office Facebook page.
The driver, Keontey Sontaurus Staten, 29, of Decatur fled from the vehicle and eluded police.
The post said a Decatur Police Department K9 officer alerted to the presence of narcotics. This lead to the discovery of more than one pound of marijuana.
Staten now is facing a possession of marijuana charge.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Staten is asked to contact Morgan County Dispatch at 256-350-4613 or use the Tip Link here: http://bit.ly/2N3tluo
