In three recent cases, McDowell County sheriff’s deputies apprehended suspects that attempted to flee.

Deputy Jordon Frisbee charged Seth Avery McKinney, 20, address listed as Palmer Drive in Marion, with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a public officer and failure to heed a blue light and siren.

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11, Frisbee was on U.S. 70 West, when he checked the license plate of a vehicle and learned that the driver, identified as McKinney, was wanted on felony and misdemeanor warrants.

When the deputy tried to stop the Kia, McKinney continued eastbound on U.S. 70 to Palmer Drive, where he eventually stopped.

A search of the suspect and the car turned up 6 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

In a separate case, Deputy David Jones charged James Marvin McKinney, 31, address listed as William Marvin Drive in Marion, with resisting a public officer and possession of a Schedule III controlled substance.

At 1:07 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11, Jones went to James McKinney’s residence to serve a warrant for a probation violation. The suspect attempted to flee on foot and resisted arrest when Jones apprehended him.

The deputy found three Suboxone strips on James McKinney’s person.

In another case, Detective Jesse Hick charged Benjamin Franklin Cody Perkins, 28, address listed as Ramsey Drive in Nebo, with larceny and possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as served Perkins with an outstanding warrant for a probation violation.

At 5:05 pm. on Monday, Jan. 27, Hicks was on Nebo School Road and noticed a suspicious male, later identified as Perkins, go into Dollar General. The detective knew Perkins was wanted.

Perkins came out of the store and fled from Hicks, who subsequently chased the suspect on foot and captured him a short distance later.

Hicks searched the suspect and located drug paraphernalia, as well as several food items taken from Dollar General.

Seth McKinney got a $4,500 bond. Marvin McKinney got a $2,000 bond and Perkins got a $2,500.
