Report: Cocaine trafficker arrested following chase in North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A suspected cocaine trafficker was arrested following a car chase in North Charleston on Wednesday that ended at his home.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office charged 35-year-old Antonio Jamal Miller with failure to stop for blue lights and two counts of trafficking cocaine. Miller's bond was set at $225,000.

On Wednesday afternoon, a deputy reported that he attempted to stop a car that was weaving in and out of lanes on Highway 78. The sheriff's office says the driver, later identified as Miller, failed to stop and a car chase ensued.

Authorities say at one point during the chase, Miller threw something out on Manerbrier Street.

According to investigators, Miller eventually lost control of his car on Wayland Drive where it drove into a small ditch near the suspect's home. Miller was found with nearly $6,000 of cash on him.

Additional deputies responded to Manerbrier Street where Miller was seen throwing an item, and found two plastic bags containing a white powdery substance and a white rock like substance.

Deputies also found $4,485 in cash in the vehicle, as well as a scale with a white powder residue.

The sheriff's office reports that while the suspect was waiting in the lobby, he said,"I need to stop selling...and get a real job...because this is the second time I have got caught with drugs."
