March 18--Two people from Burke County led police on a high speed chase through Granite Falls after selling methamphetamine, the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office said in a press release.
At around 4 p.m. Wednesday, Destiny Nicole Miller, 29, of Morganton and Nou Long Yang, 27, of Connelly Springs were sitting in a car outside Walmart in Granite Falls when investigators say the two sold 7.2 grams of methamphetamine. The press release did not say who bought the drugs, and the county's public information officer, LouAnne Kincaid, declined to comment further.
After the sale, officers approached the car, but Yang, who was driving, tried to speed away and slammed into an unoccupied car parked nearby, the press release said.
Yang stopped briefly, then drove off, leading officers up the U.S. 321 north toward the Granite Falls McDonald's and on to Duke Street. Officers lost sight of Yang's car on Duke Street, the press release said.
At around 8:30 that evening, Yang and Miller were passengers in another car when that car was pulled over on Rhodhiss Road in Burke County by N.C. Highway Patrol. The two were arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell or deliver methamphetamine, selling methamphetamine, and delivering methamphetamine. Yang was also charged with fleeing to elude arrest and hit and run with injury. Miller's bond was set at $250,000 secured. Yang's bond was set at $350,000 secured.
