Springhill Police have arrested a local man on multiple drug charges.

Zackary Doster, 39, of Springhill Airport Road, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana, a legend drug, drug paraphernalia, flight from an officer, no insurance and no motorcycle vehicle inspection sticker.

Officers first class J. Dilorenzo and H. Boyle were attempting to conduct a traffic stop, when the 1998 Chevy Pick-up truck fled the scene in a residential area at speeds of around 50 miles per hour.

“The vehicle came to a stop on Centerpark Drive and the officer ordered the driver at gunpoint, later identified as Doster, to exit the vehicle,” said Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd. “He was arrested for flight and the vehicle was searched.”

Officers reportedly recovered one small plastic container filled with a crystal-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, one small glass vial of Lidocaine USP, one small gas vila filled with a white powdery substance call Ceftriaxone, both of which, according to the report are required to have a prescription.

Also discovered were a small glass pipe and one orange pill bottle filled with 6.5 grams of suspected synthetic marijuana.

Doster was taken to Springhill PD where he was booked and later transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. His truck was towed by a wrecker service.
