Kevin Shawn Hurley:

Rowan County Sheriff’s deputies issued arrest warrants for Hurley on May 17th based on his alleged use of someone else’s N.C. Driver’s license to illegally purchase pseudoephedrine, a meth precursor chemical, from area pharmacies. Hurley faced charges of allegedly trafficking stolen ID’s with the intent of assisting others in purchasing pseudoephedrine from other drug stores. According to North Carolina statutes persons must show a picture ID to purchase drugs containing pseudoephedrine. State laws also regulate the frequency of purchase.

During his flight from law enforcement Hurley allegedly broke into a property only to be discovered by its owner. Hurley fled, leaving behind drug paraphernalia including syringes, pipes, and spoons.
