One of the teens, David Sydney Smith, 19, address not given, reportedly said he and the two other teens were at a girl’s house, but they had to leave because she did not want them there anymore.
Zachery Tyler Wynne, 16, 451 Swanson Road, Louisburg, and James William Monday, 17, 154 Crowder Road, Castalia and Smith were on the side of South Cross Street at the Children’s Ark Day Care at 2:25 a.m. when a passerby phoned in their presence to law enforcement.
“We were just hanging out trying to find someone to pick us up and take us back to White Level,” Smith reportedly told officers.
When the police arrived and activated their blue lights two of the teens ran, with the officers giving chase.
Monday and Wynne ran through the woods, traversed a creek and into a back yard on South Cross Street.
Garret was finally able to grab Wynne by the shirt and convince him to settle by by threatening to use his Taser.
Monday also stopped at that point and lay face down on the ground.
A search of the area revealed a dry pack of L&M cigarettes with four separate baggies of marijuana inside, a napkin containing marijuana beside one of teens’ hats and a 24-pack of Bud Light beer.
Officers determined Smith had not been drinking and he told them the marijuana belonged to Wynne.
Smith was issued a citation by Payne and was transported to the Sheetz in Louisburg by deputies to meet someone to take him home.
Wynne was charged with felony possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or deliver, consumption of alcohol under the age of 21 and resisting arrest. He was held at the Franklin County jail on a $10,000 bond.
Monday was charged with consumption of alcohol under the age of 21 and resisting or obstructing an officer. He was also taken to jail on a $3,000 bond.
