BEAUFORT, N.C. -

Beaufort Police have arrested a man who crashed into the front of a store, with heroin in his possession.

Police say it happened around 11:30 Friday night at the General Store in the 500 block of Front Street.

According to responding officers, 21-year-old Donovan Lee Crumbacker lost control of a 2004 Chevrolet and crashed into a Nissan pickup truck which was parked in front of the General Store. The Nissan was then shoved into a 2011 Land Rover which was also parked. The pickup truck was also shoved onto the sidewalk, knocking down a street light pole. The light pole then fell onto the General Store’s 2nd floor balcony.

Officers seized a “stamp bag” commonly used to store heroin, 3 grams of white powder and a package of rolling papers from Crumbacker’s person. They also found unused hypodermic needles inside the vehicle.

Officers estimate that Crumbacker’s vehicle was traveling 35 mph in a 25 mph zone. A 14-year-old who was riding in the car was taken to Carteret General Hospital. There’s no word on their injuries.

Crumbacker was arrested and charged with possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while license revoked and reckless driving. He’s in the Carteret County Jail under $5,000 secured bond.

The Chevrolet Crumbacker was driving is owned by someone else, damage to that car is estimated at $8,000. Police say the Nissan involved in the crash had about $5,000 damage. And the Land Rover’s damage is estimated at $1,500.
