GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – Police are looking for a wanted 28-year-old Georgetown man who failed to stop for police, crashed his car in the backyard of a home and fled on foot Thursday when 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit agents attempted to pull him over to serve him with an arrest warrant.

15TH Circuit DUE Deputy Commander Don Tempalsky says the warrants DEU agents have for Franklin McCants are a result of a search warrant executed two weeks ago. The agents had an arrest warrant for McCants’ girlfriend, Jana Cardinale, who was arrested at the Roadway Inn in the City of Georgetown between 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

During Cardinale’s arrest, drugs were recovered, so she now has additional charges pending due to the drugs being found at the hotel.

Cardinale, age 20, of Georgetown, is charged with two counts of receiving stolen goods under $2,000; manufacturing, distribution and possession of narcotics drugs in schedule I b and c LSD and schedule II cocaine first offense, according to the Georgetown County Detention Center.

Commander Tempalsky could not remember off hand what the search warrants recovered.

Agents are still looking for McCants within the City of Georgetown.

Anyone with info about him is asked to call DEU at 843-461-1331.
