MARLBORO COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - A wanted New Jersey man was arrested in the Pee Dee after leading authorities on a pursuit.

The Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office said deputies attempted to stop 44-year-old Sean Anthony Gray in the McColl area at around 2:45 a.m. Friday.

Officials said Gray did not stop for blue lights and sirens, leading deputies on a chase into Clio before wrecking.

Gray then tried to escape on foot but was apprehended by a deputy shortly after.

He was found to be in possession of various illegal drugs with a street value of nearly $49,900, including 897 grams of cocaine, 66 grams of crack, 381 grams of marijuana, 25 grams of meth and 81 grams of fentanyl.
