Police arrest two men allegedly attempting to flee from police in Landmark

Two Alexandria men were arrested last month for drug possession and allegedly attempting to flee from police in the Landmark area.

The suspects were arrested after getting pulled over in the 6100 block of Edsall Road on Saturday, Jan. 8.

Police found a digital scale with white powder residue in plain view in the driver’s side door, and then found 3.5 grams of suspected marijuana and an unspecified amount of suspected cocaine in the center console, according to a search warrant.

Police also found plastic baggies with small amounts of marijuana inside a black and white Air Jordan shoe box on the floor of the front passenger’s seat.

The 20-year-old driver, a Fairfax County man, was transferred to another jurisdiction and charged with identity fraud to avoid arrest/impede investigation, fleeing from law enforcement, assault and battery and failure to appear in court. He was arrested carrying nearly $2,000 in cash.

The 23-year-old passenger, an Alexandria man, was released on $50 bond that same day and the charges against him were dropped.
