BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - A Bolivia man was sentenced as a habitual offender this week and will spend more than five years in prison.

Craig Lakeith Williams was sentenced to a minimum of 68 months and a maximum of 94 months in the Department of Adult Corrections, Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David announced Wednesday.

Williams pleaded guilty to two counts of Possession with the Intent to Manufacture, Sell, or Deliver Crack Cocaine, and one count of Felony Elude arrest in a Motor Vehicle. Williams previously was convicted as a habitual felon for drug offenses in 2006.

“The case arose out of an investigation initiated by the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office investigating drug activity in the Bolivia area of Brunswick County,” the district attorney’s office stated in a news release. “Mr. Williams led deputies on a high-speed chase after they executed a search warrant on his home. Mr. Williams sold hundreds of doses of crack cocaine in his neighborhood during the months preceding his arrest.”
