MONROE, La. – Monroe police arrested a Monroe man on several drug-related charges as part of a drug investigation that concluded last week with a high-speed chase. Officers had been investigating Steven Turner, 34, of 1101 S 7th St., Monroe for about a week. Officers followed Turner after he left his home, according to the March 11 arrest report. When Turner noticed the officers tailing him, he sped up to about 100 miles an hour. Turner flew through a red light at an intersection, striking two vehicles.
