Police crash into suspects after high speed chase, find pills
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- North Charleston police have arrested four men after a high speed chase ended with both the suspects and the cops crashing their vehicles.
According to the incident report, police were patrolling around Ashley Phosphate and Landmark Drive when they saw a white pickup that matched the description of suspects wanted for counterfeiting money.
Police tried to stop the truck, which had four black males inside, but the driver sped onto Cross County Road, going as fast as 100 miles per hour.
The report says the suspect crashed into a SUV on Windsor Hill Blvd. after running a stop light, then kept on going before losing control and hitting a concrete pillar on Dorchester Manor Blvd.
The officers that were chasing the suspects couldn't stop in time and crashed into the truck.
The driver of the truck tried to run off but was caught. Two others were handcuffed inside the truck and a fourth was treated for shock.
Officers report they found a "clear plastic baggie in the middle console" containing 118 blue pills they believe to be Oxycodone pills.
All four suspects were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute. The driver, Jackie Coaxum, was also charged with failure to stop for blue lights and a second offense DUS.
Arrested were: 21-year-old Jackie Ivan Coaxum, 19-year-old Zachary Alexis Frank Aiken, 19-year-old Jamal Rashad Harris-Nelson and 20-year-old Tyvon Sydell Walker.
