City drug dealer arrested following pursuit

A city man wanted on felony drug warrants was arrested following a brief pursuit on the west side Tuesday afternoon around 3:30.

The Logan County Joint Drug Task Force saw Adair Robinson (pictured), 26, of 508 1/2 North Madriver Street, stopped in a vehicle at the intersection of North Detroit Street and West Brown Avenue.

Authorities saw a man standing in the driver's window of Robinson's vehicle.

After observing a possible drug transaction, one of the detectives yelled "sheriff's office" with his badge hanging around his neck.

Robinson then fled southbound on Detroit Street at a high rate of speed. He went through a red light at the intersection of Detroit and Sandusky and turned westbound on Sandusky.

A semi driver on Sandusky Avenue was able to stop in time to prevent an accident.

The semi driver then allowed the officers to continue their pursuit.

Robinson turned northbound on Walker Street then westbound on West Williams Avenue.

After blowing his tire, Robinson stopped on Williams near Lawrence Street. His car's bumper was partially dragging, too.

Officers believe that Robinson struck a parked vehicle on Walker Street.

Robinson was arrested on two trafficking in crack cocaine warrants. He was also charged with a felony count of failure to comply with a police officer and a parole violation.

A baggie of marijuana was found in Robinson's vehicle. A digital scale with cocaine residue was found inside his residence.

Robinson was lodged in the Logan County Jail.

Authorities seized Robinson's cell phone and cash. His vehicle was impounded.

No one was injured during the pursuit.
