NATCHEZ — A brief car chase led to the arrest of two men Wednesday on a total of 13 charges.

Adams County Sheriff Chuck Mayfield said Metro Narcotics officers attempted to pull over a 2011 red Chevy Camaro Wednesday afternoon, when the driver drove over a curb and sped off.

Metro attempted to pull over Terrance Jim Turner, 21, 66 Mullins Road, for sale of promethazine with codeine.

When police lights flashed and the car sped away, officers saw the driver or passengers toss out of the car window what turned out to be bottles of promethazine with codeine liquid.

When the Camero was pulled over after a few minutes, officers discovered two men and two teenaged, minor girls in the car.

The passenger, Jeremy Hamilton, 24, 170 Duck Pond Road, was arrested on charges of contributing to delinquency of a minor.

Both men were charged with sale of promethazine with codeine, obstruction of justice, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of promethazine with codeine with intent to distribute.

The driver, Turner, was also charged with no driver’s license, felony fleeing, reckless driving, running a red light and child endangerment. Promethazine with codeine provides a similar high to morphine. Contributing to delinquency of minor and child endangerment charges were in reference to the teenaged girls in the car.

Both men are being held at the Adams County jail without bail.
