Suspect runs but caught and charged

MOULTRIE — A man accused of running from police faces a felony drug charge after officers found a considerable amount of suspected marijuana in his pockets when he was captured.

Kameion Kejuan Pace, 23, 329 Hwy. 111, was charged Wednesday with possession of more than an ounce of marijuana and obstruction of a police officer.

Moultrie Police Department reports said that an officer stopped a 1994 Volvo S40 at about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday in the at First Avenue and Fifth Street Northwest. The officer stopped the Volvo because it appeared to have a temporary tag with only a date on it.

A second officer who came to assist the officer who made the traffic stop saw a clear plastic bag in the back seat of the car and asked the three people to get out of the car, police Inv. Eric Fries said.

“Kameion Pace took off and fled the scene on foot,” Fries said. “(An officer) was able to apprehend him.”

A search of Pace turned up about four ounces of suspected marijuana, he said.

“The other two individuals with him said they didn’t know about it, and he (Pace) said they didn’t have anything to do with it, so we let them go,” Fries said.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
