Papers filed in court say fugitive David Clyde Morgan may have run from police because he new authorities in North Carolina had searched his home there and found three pounds of marijuana.
Morgan is still being sought after pointing a gun at a Geneseo police officer during a traffic stop last month. The officer fired at him, but Morgan ran into the woods and hasn't been seen since.
Morgan's girlfriend, Sandra Brown, was in the car when Morgan was stopped and she was arrested. The paperwork quotes Brown telling investigators that Morgan was on the run because of the raid on his house.
Morgan is on federal probation after serving 14 years in prison for a drug crime in Texas.
