Tabor suspect leaves ID behind

It wasn’t hard for Tabor City Police to track down a suspect who allegedly fled a traffic stop Monday – the man left his identification behind.

Carlos Jaquan McClure, 22, turned himself in on charges of fleeing to elude arrest, driving while license revoked and moving violations. His bond was set at $1,000. McClure gave his address as 6151 Ten Mile Road, Tabor City.

Major R. Conway of the TCPD reported that he stopped McClure for a lane violation near 209 Orange street around 11:20 a.m. Conway called for backup, and as he approached McClure’s 2008 Nissan, the officer detected a strong smell of marijuana.

McClure provided his identification card when approached by the officers, the report said. When Lt. C. Hilburn and Conway asked McClure to exit his vehicle, he refused.  McClure then put the car in gear and fled the scene.

TCPD and the sheriff’s office went to McClure’s home, where family members made contact with the suspect and convinced him to turn himself in.
