GREENVILLE, N.C. -

A Pitt County teen is facing charges after leading deputies on a chase overnight in Greenville.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Christy Wallace tells 9 On Your Side the chase started after deputies spotted two teens parked at D.H. Conley High. 16-year-old Malik Ore was driving, with a 15-year-old passenger. The teens took off in a pickup truck.

Wallace says they led deputies on a chase down Eastern Pines Drive. The teens never went over 60 mph, but stop sticks were used to stop them.

When deputies stopped the teens they found drug paraphernalia and a shotgun in the vehicle.

We're told the 15-year-old was released to his parents. Ore was arrested and charged with fleeing to elude arrest.

No word yet on any charges for the passenger.
