Two Madison men were arrested this week on drug charges after attempting to elude officers, Dane County officials said.
On Monday, officers initiated a traffic stop involving Antarius J. Sanders, 22, of Madison, and noticed a strong smell of marijuana, according to a release. Sanders fled on foot, but officers caught up to him and he was taken into custody.
Police said Sanders had crack cocaine on him and 6.7 grams of cocaine base, $2,000 in cash and drug paraphernalia in his hotel room at the Super 8 on Hayes Road.
Sanders was arrested on tentative charges of possession of cocaine base with intent to deliver and resisting arrest, and on a probation hold.
On Tuesday, police conducted a consented search on Columbus Lane in Madison, resulting in the arrest of Stephan C. Marton, 23, of Madison, according to a release. Marton had previously led investigators on a high-speed pursuit when he fled a traffic stop.
