Denton Motorcyclist Leads Police On Chase For Drug Crimes

Denton police found a man with marijuana, THC extract and a digital scale Sunday after the man crashed his motorcycle during a short pursuit near the intersection of West University Drive and Fulton Street, according to Denton police spokesman Bryan Cose.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) extract is a concentrated form of the chemical properties found in marijuana.

At about 3:50 a.m. Sunday, a patrol sergeant noticed the 20-year-old suspect’s motorcycle didn’t have a license plate. The motorcycle pulled into a gas station, so the officer pulled in to inquire about the missing plate, Cose said.

The man then got back on his motorcycle and rode eastbound on University Drive as the officer attempted to make a traffic stop. The officer stopped chasing the vehicle after the motorcycle reached a high rate of speed on West University Drive, Cose said.

When the rider attempted to make a U-turn on University at Fulton Street, he lost control and crashed, fleeing on foot. Cose said police caught up to the suspect and found the drugs.

The man was taken to Denton City Jail on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

He said police were called to the disturbance at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday. The man said the fight started because he came home late.
