Chase defendant draws indictment

CAMERON— A 39- year-old Rockdale man who was arrested Jan. 21 after a foot chase involving police was indicted Thursday in connection with a different chase.

Larry Morris Sandles Jr. was indicted for evading arrest with a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled substance (more than one gram).

Lt. J. D. Newlin said those indictments had nothing to do with the Jan. 21 incident in which a man sought for a sex offense ran from police and was eventually arrested and charged with the possession of two stolen handguns linked to— but not fired in—a defendant in an April 25, 2011 murder.

“ These indictments were in connection with a July incident in which a man fled from police in a vehicle, was apprehended and then was found to be in possession of drugs,” Newlin said.

Prosecutor Kerry Spears listed other indictments as follows:

• G eorge Grayson Sr., 60, Rockdale, possession of a controlled substance (less than one gram).
