"On Wed., Dec. 9, at 1pm, members of the Winston-Salem Police Department SWAT team, Gang Unit, and K-9 Unit working in concert with the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force (JFTF) apprehended Mr. Elliot Denard Coleman II, a 28 year old black male. Coleman resides at 1500 Zuider Zee Drive in Winston-Salem.
On Sept. 18, an Order for Arrest was issued for Coleman for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Manufacture Sale/Deliver Controlled Substance within a Thousand Feet of School, Manufacture Sale/Deliver of a Controlled Substance within 1000 Feet of a Park, Maintain a Vehicle/Dwelling for a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Driving While Licensed Revoked. Coleman also had an outstanding Probation Violation which was issued on Sept. 15 because Coleman absconded from post-release supervision. Coleman was placed on supervised post-release supervision after serving a term in the North Carolina Department of Prisons for Assault with a Firearm on a Law Enforcement Official, Possession of Firearm by Felon and Common Law Robbery.
Those charges stemmed from an incident which occurred on May 12, 2012 in Winston Salem where Coleman exchanged gunfire with WSPD officers who were conducting a narcotics investigation. Coleman received gunshot wound injuries during that incident, no officers were injured. On 11-24-15 WSPD officers responded to the 800 block of Woodcote St. after being called by bail bondsmen who advised they were pursuing Elliott Coleman II for absconding on a bail when he fired a handgun at them. Coleman was able to get away from the bondsmen. No one was injured during that incident.
On Sept. 9, the JFTF and the WSPD SWAT team conducted surveillance in the 1300 block of Brewer Road in Winston Salem. Information was developed that Coleman was inside a single family home located at 1330 Brewer Road. Members of U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force (JFTF), Winston Salem Police Department SWAT team, GANG Unit, and Canine Unit responded to the above listed address. Coleman complied with police commands to surrender and was taken into custody without incident.
Coleman was transported to the Forsyth County Detention Center to be processed and was held under no bond allowed."
