A Franklin County man who resisted arrest and fled from narcotics investigators last month is facing charges in two separate felony complaints.
Gregory A. Gullet, 32, is charged in one warrant with felony counts of resisting/interfering with an arrest for a felony and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia — amphetamine/methamphetamine. That charge stems from a May 31 incident at Villa Ridge.
Gullet is charged in the other warrant with one count each of felony possession of a controlled substance and resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony in connection with a June 20, 2011, investigation.
Members of the Franklin County Narcotics Enforcement Unit went to the Sunset Motel off Highway AT at Villa Ridge Thursday, May 31, after obtaining information that a suspect was cooking meth at that location, a task force spokesman said.
When officers pulled up on the parking lot they saw Gullet carrying a large trash bag heading for a dumpster. When officers ordered him to stop and get on the ground he began swinging the bag around and threw it at two of the officers, then ran into a wooded area, the spokesman said.
Officers chased and caught the suspect in the woods then took him into custody.
Investigators said the bag contained meth-making chemicals and components and drug paraphernalia.
A $50,000 cash-only bond was set for Gullet in the May 31 incident.
Gullet’s bond on the warrant in the June 2011 case was set at $25,000 cash-only.
Gullet has previous felony convictions in drug-related cases filed in Audrain and Crawford counties, according to online court documents.
In 2005, Gullet was given a five-year suspended sentence and placed on five years’ probation after pleading guilty to a felony drug charge in Crawford County. His probation was revoked in the case in 2007.
In 2009, Gullet pleaded guilty to illegal possession of anhydrous ammonia and interfering with an arrest in a felony case in Audrain County. He was sentenced to concurrent one-year terms in the Missouri Department of Corrections and the Audrain County jail in that case, according to court records.
