Jackson County resident Anthony Holden was found guilty this week of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting an officer without violence, and driving while license suspended, canceled or revoked, according to a press release from the office of State Attorney Larry Basford.

A Jackson County jury returned the verdict on April 27.

According to the release, evidence was presented at trial that on Jan. 7, 2020, Holden was pulled over by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office for a traffic infraction and immediately abandoned his vehicle and fled the scene. He was taken into custody after a short chase on foot and authorities found six jeweler bags containing methamphetamine in his front, right pocket.

The release further states that Holden is currently on probation for robbery with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and now faces up to life in prison.

Circuit Judge James Jefferson Goodman Jr. scheduled sentencing for June 24. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorneys Lawrence Gill and Ben Keown.
