Havelock police arrested a man Sunday after a short chase in the Tucker Creek subdivision.
Edwaun Tuschan Gibbs, 38, of 800 Sermons Road, was arrested on multiple charges shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday, Havelock Police Chief G. Wayne Cyrus said.
Cyrus said the arrest came when Havelock police were dispatched to the residence to check on the welfare of a woman described as Gibbs’ girlfriend. When officers arrived, they noticed Gibbs’ Hyundai Sonata in the driveway and were aware that he was wanted on several outstanding felony warrants from the New Bern Police Department, Cyrus said.
Gibbs got in a vehicle and attempted to flee the area, Cyrus said. Gibbs turned into the Tucker Creek subdivision and jumped from the vehicle. Police caught Gibbs after a short chase.
Gibbs was served with warrants from New Bern for charges of felony breaking and entering, felony common law robbery, felony second-degree kidnapping, assault on a female, interfering with emergency communications, injury to personal property, injury to real property and driving while license revoked.
Additionally, Havelock police added new charges of driving while license revoked, speeding to elude arrest, and resist, obstruct and delay of an officer.
Havelock police handed custody of Gibbs over to New Bern authorities for transport to jail.
