WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Police in Wilmington seized drugs after arresting a known-trespasser in the Houston Moore community Monday night.
An officer spotted Brandon Montrell Wilson walking in the area and called out his name, according to Lt. Blanton. He said the officer recognized Wilson, who is on the Wilmington Housing Authority's trespassing list.
Wilson took off running and the officer caught him after a brief chase, according to Blanton. He said officers located Wilson's vehicle and found drugs.
