Thomas County investigators say they received a tip that repeat offender Sintil Young would be selling crack-cocaine at a business on West Jackson Street in Thomasville.

But they say the 23-year-old didn't submit to arrest easily, even with his car surrounded by deputies.

Says Special Agent Kevin Lee, "He exited the vehicle, fled on foot, and ran into some heavy brush behind the business ... at which time he was taken to the ground and arrested, and underneath him he tried to hide somewhere near a half an ounce of crack-cocaine."

Young is charged with multiple crimes including possession of crack-cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and playground, and obstruction by resisting arrest.

Narcotics agents say they also found a misdemeanor amount of marijuana on the suspect.
