A man and woman were arrested Thursday night after fleeing a Laurel motel room that police were about to raid as part of a drug investigation and leading officers on a pursuit through multiple jurisdictions, according to Howard County Police.
Police had arrived about 5 p.m. at the Turf Motel in the 9800 block of Washington Boulevard to serve a search and seizure warrant at one of the motel's rooms when they saw the pair drive off in a 2003 Ford Taurus, police said.
The man and the woman passenger, who have not been identified pending the filing of charges, then surrendered and were arrested, police said.
Police said subsequent searches of the Taurus and the motel room uncovered unspecified guns and drugs.
No further information was immediately available.
