Tracy Leonard Brown

ABINGDON, Va. — A jury has convicted a man who led police on a high-speed chase through southwest Virginia while transporting more than 2 lbs. of meth.

Tracy Leonard Brown, 45, was found guilty of multiple drug and gun charges following a three-day trial.

Authorities say Brown had arranged to sell the drugs to an undercover informant in Wytheville. He was arrested on July 3, 2019, as he drove through Carroll County, using a scout in an attempt to avoid police.

When he was arrested, police found the drugs, along with two handguns, $3,800 in cash, and items used for drug sales.

Brown will be sentenced Dec. 16.
