Undercover deputies spotted Quattlebaum outside his residence at 112 South Oakland Avenue in Statesville.
Once positively identified, uniformed deputies approached Quattlebaum and arrested him without incident, officials said.
Deputies found cocaine and marijuana, which were packaged in a way to be sold and delivered, while searching Quattlebaum.
Quattlebaum was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center where he was served with a total of 14 outstanding warrants and orders for arrest.
The most recent warrant comes from an incident on Aug. 5, 2023, when deputies attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Quattlebaum.
He waited for the deputy to approach him before speeding off, which led to a vehicle chase into nearby counties.
The pursuit was soon canceled due to Quattlebaum being identified as the driver, and deputies obtained arrest warrants.
Quattlebaum is charged with:
- Felony fleeing to elude
- Felony possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine
- Felony probation violations
- Reckless driving to endanger
- Misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia
- Misdemeanor possession of marijuana
- Multiple failure to appear warrants of felony and misdemeanor charges
He has been placed under a $182,000 secured bond for his charges.
