Statesman Staff Writer

A Dexter man is behind bars this weekend following a brief chase on County Road 702.

According to a news release from Stoddard County Sheriff Carl Hefner, the incident occurred on Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012.

Deputy Travis Stafford reportedly made an attempt to stop a vehicle, but the driver failed to yield. The vehicle then turned into a driveway and shut of its lights.

As Stafford approached the vehicle, a white male exited the vehicle and ran into the back yard of the residence. When ordered to stop, the suspect continued to flee and climbed under a camper located on the property.

He was eventually apprehended and found to be in possession of a "large quantity" of crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and pills that were discovered to be a controlled substance.

The individual has been identified as 34-year-old Michael C. Lambert of Dexter.

He was taken to the Stoddard County Jail and charged with the Class A felony of probation/parole violation, the Class B felony of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver/distribute/manufacture, the Class C felony of possession of a controlled substance (prior and persistent offender), the Class C felony of possession of a controlled substance and the Class A misdemeanor of possession of marijuana.

Lambert remains incarcerated at the Stoddard County Jail facing a $50,000 cash-only bond.
