A tip from Halifax County Crimestoppers led agents of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office to open a drug investigation on a home in the area of East Littleton Road and Patsy Albritton Street.
Captain A.M. Harris said in a statement Agent D.J. Epperson was assigned the tip and started the investigation in September.
Epperson confirmed drug activity was reportedly taking place and identified the alleged suspect as 42-year-old Donnell Davis.
With the assistance of a cooperating source, several controlled purchases were arranged with Davis from the date of the complaint through this week.
Epperson obtained warrants on Davis for maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, three counts of sell cocaine, three counts of deliver cocaine and three counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine.
At approximately 2 p.m. Thursday agents and deputies executed a search warrant at the East Littleton Road residence.
During the search of the residence approximately 164 hits of crack cocaine, nine bags of marijuana, a box of plastic bags and two digital scales were seized.
Epperson arrested and charged Davis with trafficking cocaine, possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine, possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Davis was also served with the outstanding warrants. The street value of the cocaine seized was approximately $3,300.
Davis received a $30,000 bond with a January 20 court date for the sell/deliver charges and a February 24 court date for the trafficking charges.
