Police chase yields stolen-goods, DWI charges

Posted July 3, 2008

— State troopers charged two Cary men with alcohol and theft offenses after a chase that exceeded 90 mph on Interstate 40 early Thursday.

A trooper tried to pull over a silver Jetta for going 92 mph along Interstate 40 between the Gorman Street and Lake Wheeler Road exits around 2:15 a.m. The driver refused to stop, and the trooper pursued, officials said.

The chase ended near Lily Allen Road when the car's occupants jumped out of it and ran. The Jetta, which was still in drive, ran down an embankment.

Raleigh police assisted in the operation and helped arrest Breion Duran Young, 20, and Carlos Dontell Golden, 19.

Young faces felony charges of larceny and possession of stolen goods and a host of traffic violations: driving while impaired, speeding 92 mph in a 65 mph zone, speeding to elude, running a red light and an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle. He was also charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer.

Golden faces charges of felony possession of a stolen vehicle; resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer; and an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.

Both were being held in the Wake County Jail on Thursday evening. Young had a $6,500 bond, and Golden, a $5,500 bond.

Young served probation in 2005 for simple assault.

    Where do they come up with these names?
    Bail is way too low - these guys will be in the NC criminal justice system for the rest of their lives. They endangered many people and the police officers in their grand theft auto chase - plus the driver was drunk! I would expect at least a bond of $100,000 for the driver, maybe $75,000 for the other perp. Glad the LEO's are ok after catching these felons.

    I guess they're out now stealing something to pay their lawyers. The courts aren't doing their jobs to serve the public.

    Cary use to be a good place to live - I have noticed recently that there appears to be more questionable people moving in recently - not sure why - hope this is not a pattern...

    What is wrong with the court systems around here. $5,500 & $6,500 for bail? I think I got a harder punishment for having an expired inspection sticker.
