A Brooklyn man led New Jersey State Police on a 25-mile chase up the Garden State Parkway before crashing his car and being arrested, the New York Daily News reports. Police said that the driver had, amongst other things, 80 pounds of “marijuana candy” in his car.
According to the Daily News, Samuel Bompane, 22, was caught speeding in Brick Township. Police gave chase, but ceased their pursuit when Bompane entered a construction zone. Bompane drove along the shoulder before crashing into another car.
Police said they found “a plethora of different drugs” valued at more than $100,000, including 80 pounds of marijuana candy, more than 10 pounds of marijuana, hashish oil, and prescription drugs. Police said they also found around $35,000 in cash.
Bompane, who police said is being held in Monmouth County Jail on $725,000 cash bail, is charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated assault with a vehicle, and possession with intent to distribute.
