DRUGS

FOURTH AVENUE AND FIR COURT: A 28-year-old man who’d escaped from the VOA at the end of July was arrested on a number of charges Friday morning. Travis Harding, who had a warrant for his arrest after escaping the VOA on July 30, was seen by deputies driving a gray 2004 VW Beetle. They tried to stop him, and he took off, leading to a short pursuit. He drove at a high speed on Burma Avenue, ran a red light and almost crashed. He parked in the hospital’s parking garage and fled on foot, said Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron English. Deputies caught up to him at Fourth Avenue and Fir Court and arrested him. Harding had a backpack that contained 6.1 grams of suspected meth and a small amount of heroin. He was arrested on the warrant, and he also was charged with two counts of drug possession and possession with intent to deliver, all felonies, as well as eluding, a misdemeanor. Harding has three prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance.
