Usually Marines show their bravery on the battlefield, but Saturday, two Camp Lejeune Marines helped nab a suspect who tried to flee from Jacksonville police.
Around 3 p.m. Saturday, a Jacksonville police officer clocked a vehicle driving 61 mph in a 45 mph zone near the intersection of Western Boulevard and Brynn Marr Road, said Jacksonville police Sgt. Cliff McQueen.
Police pulled the driver over and found he had no driver’s license, and the officer found drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle, McQueen said. The man then ran from the officer, McQueen said.
“The suspect … ran down Brynn Marr Road, and there were two citizens, both of them Marines, that observed the suspect running in their direction,” McQueen said. “When the suspect approached them, the two Marines tackled the suspect and held (the suspect) until the officers got there.”
The two Marines, Sgt. Jason Millspaugh and Lance Cpl. Clifford Ray, are both assigned to the 6th Marine Regiment at Camp Lejeune, McQueen said.
Police charged Detony Greaves, 22, of Onslow Drive, with possession with intent to sell, manufacture and deliver marijuana, maintaining a vehicle for transporting marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resist, obstruct and delay and driving while license revoked.
Bond was set at $7,500.
The arrest was part of the department’s concentration on Western Boulevard and the bypass Saturday to catch speeders, McQueen said.
