MILFORD — A Mishawaka man was recently arrested after allegedly leading officers in a vehicle pursuit while in possession of drugs.
Corey Michael Dains, 38, 1712 Southwood Drive, Mishawaka, is charged with dealing in a narcotic drug, a level 4 felony; possession of methamphetamine, possession of a narcotic drug, and carrying a handgun without a license with a prior conviction, all level 5 felonies; resisting law enforcement and dealing marijuana, both level 6 felonies; carrying a handgun without a license, a class A misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor.
On Dec. 4, 2020, a Milford Police officer saw a motorcycle traveling on SR 15 faster than the posted speed limit. When the officer attempted to pull the motorcycle over, the driver began speeding away.
According to court documents, during the pursuit, the motorcyclist disregarded traffic signals and other motorists while speeding. When the driver attempted to make a turn onto Cedar Road, he crashed. The driver, later identified as Dains, attempted to flee on foot but was detained by the officer.
While searching Dains’ person, officers found two plastic bags containing 29.7 grams of marijuana. They also found a smoking device with methamphetamine residue and five pills identified as a narcotic drug.
Dains also had $729 in currency, several packs of small plastic bags, and a semi-automatic handgun with a loaded magazine.
He was taken to a South Bend hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the crash. Dains was previously convicted of carrying a handgun without a license in Elkhart County in February 2020.
For this case, Dains was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on Sept. 9, with a $10,250 surety and cash bond.
