Despite the existence of a statewide mask mandate since July and other pandemic-related health orders since early April, arrests for violating the orders have been few and far between.

In Limestone County, three individuals found themselves in that group after taking authorities on a high-speed chase April 6 that ended in drug and firearm charges for each of them. At least one of the three has since been indicted on the charges by a Limestone County grand jury.

Samantha Jo Menefee. 22, of Clarksville, Tennessee, was indicted Oct. 23 on the following: trafficking methamphetamine or any mixture containing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless endangerment, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, attempt to elude law enforcement and violation of a health order.

Court records show Ladarius Kevon Flower, 19, of Cuba, Alabama, was also indicted Oct. 23 on a charge of trafficking meth. Like Menefee, he was initially charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and violating the state's stay-at-home order. However, court records available Tuesday did not show whether he was also indicted on those charges.

According to the Limestone County Sheriff's Office, an Alabama state trooper had attempted to pull Menefee over for speeding. Menefee refused to stop and instead led the trooper and a sheriff's deputy on a chase that ended on Thach Road near Alabama 251. LCSO reported each person in the vehicle had a firearm within reach of their seat, and a search of the car uncovered methamphetamine, marijuana and 196 ecstasy tablets.

Charges against the third individual in the car were dismissed in late April. Below are the names of other individuals who were indicted by a Limestone County grand jury in October.
