The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department arrested a man after a high-speed chase.

Around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, members of Harrison County’s Narcotics Division attempted a traffic stop on a GMC pickup truck on 30th Avenue near 13th Street. 24-year-old Jacob William Fairley was the driver.

Deputies said that Fairley didn’t stop and tried to flee while deputies pursued. Fairley’s truck crashed into an investigator’s vehicle causing significant damage, according to the sheriff’s department.

WLOX reports that Fairley eventually drove onto train tracks. He threw suspected methamphetamine out of his vehicle during the pursuit.

The truck eventually stopped and Fairley was arrested. Deputies said they found “felony amounts of methamphetamine scattered throughout the interior of the vehicle.”

WLOX reports that Fairley was charged with possession with intent to distribute meth, felony fleeing, and tampering with and destroying evidence.

Judge Brandon Ladner issued Fairley a $105,000 bond.
