A man is in jail following a brief police chase in Glencoe. Officers say Anthony Leach attempted to turn around to avoid a driver’s license checkpoint at Paden Road and Nunnally Avenue. 


Officers tried to stop Leach, but he headed to West Air Depot Road where he stopped the car, got out, and ran towards an apartment complex. Officers eventually caught up to Leach and took him into custody. 


During a search of his car, officers found two large bags of marijuana and a set of scales. Leach is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $4,000 bond.
