Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two people after they tried to elude the officers in eastern Lincoln County.

On February 10, 2021 Deputy J. Starnes observed a grayish blue BMW SUV with a burned out brake light out leave the Quik Trip convenience store on Highway 73 traveling west. Deputy Starnes activated his emergency equipment to initiate a traffic stop at Cross Cut Drive and Highway 73. As the officers approached the passenger side of the vehicle, the driver accelerated fleeing the traffic stop.

Deputy Starnes attempted to pursue the vehicle but lost sight of it. A short time later a call was received about a vehicle that had wrecked near the entrance to the Trilogy subdivision. Deputies located the vehicle and learned that it had been stolen from Albemarle, NC.

The occupants had fled the scene on foot and additional law enforcement units responded to the scene and set up a perimeter. A reverse 911 call was sent out to the immediate area notifying residents to be on the lookout for the suspects. K-9 units from the Lincolnton Police Department, Catawba County Sheriff’s Office and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Drone team responded to the scene.

Deputies later received a call from a Trilogy resident that the suspects were spotted walking on a subdivision street. Deputies arrived in the area and took the suspects into custody without incident. It was also discovered that the men had entered a home under construction in an attempt to hide from the officers.

The suspects were identified as Chase D’Carlo Bruton, 22, of Charlotte, NC and Emanuel Lamont Allen, 24, of Norwood, NC. Bruton is charged with felony fleeing to elude, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, speeding, left of center, damage to property and breaking and entering. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $22,000 secured bond. Allen is facing charges of resist, delay and obstruct a public officer, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, larceny of a motor vehicle, damage to property and breaking and entering. He is in jail under a $19,000 secured bond.
