Authorities say a 57 year old man wanted on active warrants is facing multiple other charges after he ran from police.
According to Henderson Police, an officer saw Hubert McGuire at the intersection of Clay and South Ingram Streets around 6:00 p.m. Wednesday and knew he had active warrants. They say when the officer approached McGuire he took off running and throwing things out of his pockets.

Police reportedly found baggies of suspected crystal meth and marijuana that was thrown on the ground by McGuire when he was running. During a search, authorities say they also found several more baggies in McGuire’s pockets along with money.
McGuire, who police say is homeless, was lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center with first degree Trafficking in a Controlled Substance – Greater or Equal to Two (2) Grams of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, second degree Fleeing and Evading Police on Foot, Resisting Arrest, Harassment – physical contact (no injury), Tampering with Physical Evidence, and a Bench Warrant for Contempt of Court.
