RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A man was arrested on several drug charges after leading deputies on a chase that ended on Interstate 20 Monday afternoon.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says investigators received a tip that Joseph Cutro,56, was transporting marijuana and would be picking up a package of drugs Monday. Deputies attempted to pull him over for having improper vehicle registration at Broad River and Dutch Square Roads when Lott says Cutro took off.

Lott says Cutro led deputies down Broad River Road to Main Street, where he got into Interstate 20 and was eventually arrested west of Monticello Road.

Cutro is charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, driving under suspension, transporting drugs in a motor vehicle and failure to stop for blue lights. He was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

According to SLED, Cutro has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1976, including assault, shoplifting, drugs, weapons, kidnapping and assault on a police officer.
