GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said after a high-speed chase, two men who were transporting drugs from Charlotte to the Upstate are in custody.

Deputies said undercover officers started following the four-wheel drive Dodge Ram pickup truck in Charlotte and tried to pull the driver over in Cleveland County, but he fled.

The truck led a chase for approximately 20 miles into South Carolina, reaching speeds of more than 100 miles per hour and running over construction barrels, deputies said.

A sign in the media was struck during the chase, which continued until a deputy initiated a pit maneuver near the Peachoid in Cherokee County. The driver then ran out of gas due to damage from debris hit in the media.

Deputies took 46-year-old Charles Edward Dawkins Jr. and 41-year-old Daniel Rowell Glenn into custody. Investigators said more than six and half pounds of meth valued at $125,0000 was seized from them.

They were both charged with trafficking over 400 grams of methamphetamine. Dawkins, who is from Union, is also charged with failure to stop for blue lights.
