DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities are still looking for a suspect after a manhunt in Dorchester County turned up drugs and money, but no man on Tuesday.

According to the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, 34-year-old Antuan Prioleau of Summerville lead deputies on a high-speed chase after deputies tried to pull him over on Ladson Road around 3 p.m.

During the chase, Prioleau crashed into another vehicle on Palmetto Commerce Parkway. According to the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office after the collision Prioleau bailed from the vehicle into the nearby woods.

Law enforcement set up a perimeter along the wood line near Palmetto Commerce Parkway and Ladson Road to search for him. After several hours law enforcement called off the search, saying they had good information that would lead to Prioleau's arrest.

A search of Prioleau's crashed vehicle turned up cocaine. After the find, authorities got a search warrant for Prioleau's Summerville home,  which turned up 866 gross grams of heroin, 578 gross grams of cocaine, 34 grams of marijuana, and $8,000 in cash.

Prioleau's girlfriend, Sonobia Amelia Grayer, was arrested at the home for possession of narcotics.

Anyone with information on Prioleau's whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. He is not considered armed and dangerous.
