Police: Pursuit in Auburn leads to multiple felony charges for Wayne County man

A Wayne County man was arrested over the weekend after an attempted traffic stop, which led to a pursuit.

William Benjamin Collier III, 39, was ultimately taken into custody when his vehicle collided with a tree.

Police say that on Saturday officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop around 2 a.m. after seeing Collier traveling the wrong way down a one-way street.

Police found a loaded 9 mm pistol, a fentanyl compound, cutting agent, and scale in his car near the tree.

Collier was ultimately charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminal possession of a firearm, and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

All four of those charges are felonies. Four misdemeanor charges were also filed.
