Four arrested after Fayetteville police chase

Posted January 3, 2012

— Fayetteville police arrested a man wanted on outstanding warrants Sunday after he sped away from a traffic stop and led police on a 45-minute chase.
Three passengers in the car were also taken into custody.

Terrance Justin Holmes, 21, was charged with fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle, driving while license revoked, reckless driving, providing fictitious information to law enforcement officers and driving while impaired, police said Tuesday.

Holmes had outstanding failure-to-appear warrants on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, assault on a female and injury to real property.

A patrol officer observed a 1997 Honda Accord, being driven erratically, around 3:30 a.m., police said. While the officer was speaking with Holmes and his three passengers, Holmes allegedly sped away, leading police on a chase through Harnett County, Spring Lake, Fort Bragg and back to Fayetteville.

The car eventually ran out of gas on Bragg Boulevard, and all four occupants were arrested, police said.

Jalisa Janee McCoy, 22, was cited on a charge of possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle; Tiffany Lashaun Lee, 23, was cited on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon; and Jerome Wayne Jones Jr., 21, was cited on a charge of possession of marijuana.

Those three have been released. Holmes was being held Tuesday at the Cumberland County jail on a $143,400 bond.

    Hunter38, my statement was reference to this from Fayetteville's Newspaper. It wasn't a statement of condemnation towards the cops, rather a scoff at the sorry state of affairs in that town.

    Before I even clicked on the story, I already knew what the deal was gonna be. Same ole storyline, same cast of characters. And the cycle continues.

    seems FPD is losing the ability to ask for consent to search.

    Where does it say anything about a search in the article, I failed to see that. Also, there is search incident to arrest, which means consent is not needed...especially in this situation.

    Tanner, I'm not so sure FPD is better off than RPD...seems FPD is losing the ability to ask for consent to search.

    Maybe this guy didn't think the police had his consent?

    I suspect the criminal justice system keeps the door revolving in order to keep the members fully employed.

    Sounds like there will be another 'forum' w/ the FPD soon, so the 'community' can criticize them for doing their job.

    I'm glad to see Fayetteville PD locked up a violent felon. Too bad for the suspects; they were in the wrong town. If it happened in Raleigh, the officers would be the ones in jail or without a job for violating the no-chase policy. No worries, there's always someone less qualified to replace them.
