Chattanooga police arrested a drug suspect while investigating a hit and run crash Thursday.

When police arrived at the BB&T Bank to investigate the crash, a man ran away on foot.

Police followed Marquelle Alexander Rhodes to a nearby McDonald's, where he ducked into the men's restroom.

That's where they located Rhodes, with an empty backpack. Security footage showed him entering the McDonald’s bathroom with a bulging backpack. 

East Ridge polices searched the bathroom and found a large box containing a loaded Taurus .45 acp handgun, over 2.3 ounces of marijuana, over $600 cash, and multiple Xanax and MDMA tablets. 

Rhodes was arrested on multiple charges including possession of drugs for resale and possession of a firearm.
