ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WNCT) – A Mount Olive man with multiple warrants led deputies on a multi-county chase, according to the Nash County Sheriff’s Office.
On Wednesday, September 22, officials with the Nash County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit observed a 2010 Honda Accord traveling at a high rate of speed and driving aggressively on Highway 301 North near Instrument Drive.

He received a $31,500.00 bond. Deputies said Harris remains in custody at the Nash County Detention Center.
