GREENVILLE, N.C. - Pitt County Deputies arrest a man they chased over two county lines for nearly an hour.

Deputies attempted to pull over Hiawatha Anthonio Keys, 28, for reckless driving but he did not stop for them.  The chase started about 7:15 Friday night.

Instead Keys drove into Craven County to Vanceboro where he finally stopped the car and took off.

Craven County Sheriff's Office and North Carolina Highway Patrol joined the search.
Deputies with K-9s found Keys hiding under a mobile home around 8:40 PM and took him into custody.

Keys didn't have a driver's license on him when deputies found him. He was driving a car that belonged to the uncle of his girlfriend, the car was not insured and had expired tags.

He faces numerous charges and has previous outstanding warrants. In Pitt County Keys is charged with driving without a license, failure to heed lights or sirens to elude arrest, reckless driving, resisting a public officer, and felony flee to elude arrest with a vehicle. Keys had outstanding warrants for possession with intent to sell or distribute Heroin, among other charges.

Keys is currently booked at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $200,000 bond. His first court appearance is scheduled for November 18th.
