LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man wanted on an outstanding warrant led officers on a brief chase before he pulled into a parking lot and was taken into custody.

An arrest report for Kamron M. Wright, 27, of Louisville, states that on January 24 Metro police were trying to pull his car over for reckless driving on the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) when Wright tried to evade them.

Wright, who was also wanted on a warrant out of Marion County, got off the Snyder at Shelbyville Road (U.S. 60) and sped off headed west, weaving in and out traffic to avoid police. Officers said Wright finally turned onto N. English Station Road, passed a car on the right shoulder and turned across traffic into the Walmart parking lot.

Once his car was stopped, police said Wright identified himself, but didn't have his drivers license. Police confirmed Wright's identity from his previous arrest records.

When Wright was searched after his arrest, police found an A&W root beer container with a false bottom that contained adderall, endocet, alprazelam and diazepam. Police also said there were a few grams of a substance believed to be heroin.

Wright also had a large amount of cash, separated by denominations, in his pants pocket. Police said the types of narcotics found along with the cash are consistent with street level drug sales.

Inside a backpack in Wright's possession police found a syringe believed to contain heroin. Officers said Wright also had track marks on his arm.

Wright was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on five counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, plus one count each of reckless driving and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is also facing two additional traffic related charges.
