Christopher David Quattlebaum, age 31, was arrested on September 27th by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.
The most recent warrant stems from an incident on August 5th, when a Deputy attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Quattlebaum.
Quattlebaum waited for the deputy to approach the vehicle before driving off at a high rate of speed, which led to a vehicle chase into neighboring counties, according to the news release. After Quattlebaum was positively identified as the driver, the pursuit was canceled, and investigators obtained warrants for his arrest.
On Wednesday, September 27, it was learned Quattlebaum was at a location on South Oakland Avenue in Statesville. While undercover deputies were conducting surveillance, the suspect was spotted outside of the home, according to the news release.
Deputies then approached and apprehended the suspect without incident.
While searching Quattlebaum, deputies located cocaine and marijuana, which were packaged in a manner consistent with the sale and delivery of the narcotics, according to the news release.
Quattlebaum was served with a total of 14 warrants and orders for arrest. The charges include Felony Fleeing to Elude, Felony Possession with Intent to Sell or Deliver Cocaine Felony Probation Violation, Misdemeanor Reckless Driving to Endanger, Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana, Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana Paraphernalia, and multiple counts of Failure to Appear on Felony and Misdemeanor Charges.
He was placed in the Iredell County Detention Center under a secured bond of $182,000.
Quattlebaum is currently on probation for two counts of Felony Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance and two counts of Felony Sell or Deliver Schedule II Controlled Substance.
