GREENSBORO, N.C. — Authorities said two kilos of cocaine were found in a pickup truck that fled Greensboro police Monday, damaging four unmarked police cars and causing minor injuries to three officers.

Ramon Conchas-Escobedo, 33, of Asheboro, was arrested after police said they received a tip he was transporting drugs into the city.

Police said they tried a roadblock on High Point Road near South Holden Road around 4:19 p.m. and the suspect accelerated and struck four unmarked police cars, including one head-on.

Greensboro police said the suspect then fled and abandoned his vehicle on Groometown Road near the overpass entrance to I-85.

Authorities said he was tracked by a police K-9 to a marshy area inside a perimeter established by Guilford County Sheriff’s deputies and Greensboro police.

Police said the suspect faces multiple felony charges including assault on a law enforcement officer. He was placed in jail on a $1,000,000 secured bond.

Greensboro police said the officers are expected to fully recover.
