GREENWICH, CT (WFSB) -

A traffic stop in Greenwich led to a police pursuit and drug bust Wednesday afternoon, according to state police.

Antonio Freeland, 26, and Michael Lundy, 41, face a number of charges.

State police said they were conducting motor vehicle enforcement in the area of Interstate 95 south's exit 10, which is in Darien.

Troopers said they saw a silver Chevrolet Sonic with North Carolina plates traveling unreasonably close to other vehicles in a construction zone.

When they sought to pull the vehicle over, the driver took off.

After a brief pursuit, the car was eventually involved in a crash off of exit 2.

Freeland and Lundy were taken into custody.

During the investigation, troopers said they found 370 grams of cocaine.

Freeland was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, first-degree reckless endangerment, interfering with an officer, reckless driving, engaging in a pursuit and failure to drive at a reasonable distance.

He was held on a $350,000 bond.

Lundy was charged with possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics with intent to sell.

He was held on a $250,000 bond.

Both were scheduled to face a judge in Stamford Thursday morning.
