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.

Staten now is facing a possession of marijuana charge.
