THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WALB) - We now know the identity of a man who led Thomas County Drug Squad Agents on a chase Tuesday afternoon.

17-year-old, Kendarius Deandre Daniels was arrested by drug agents who said he sold a half ounce of meth to an undercover narcotics agent.

Agents say they were attempting to arrest Daniels when he began to run for several blocks.

According to the drug squad commander Daniels was found under a house near Wright street and Bartow streets.

"One of the deputies was told he was possibly hiding in some bushes near a house," the drug squad commander said. "That deputy was able to go to that area and found the man hiding underneath the house, he took off his jacket and was underneath the house." 

Daniels was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers.

According to Schofill, the case is still under investigation and more charges are forthcoming with other individuals involved in the sale.
