A Wake County Sheriff's deputy stopped Olivares on I-40 at Aviation Parkway around 2 p.m. Monday. While notifying him of the reasons he was stopped, the deputy learned that Olivares was driving without a driver's license, at which point the suspect fled the scene on foot.

The drugs were valued at $504,000.

Olivares was placed in the Wake County Jail under a $150,000 bond.
