Arrests unrelated to the shooting death of a 24-year-old Roanoke Rapids woman at an Enfield party on November 12 have been made, according to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

These arrests are related to violations which occurred at the party.

Lieutenant Shane Guyant said today, with the assistance of North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement agents, several people were charged with crimes that are unrelated to the shooting death of Cierra Webb.

ALE obtained warrants for possessing alcoholic beverages for sale without ABC permits and selling alcoholic beverages without ABC permits.

The people charged had tents set up and were selling pouches of liquor, Guyant said.

They are:

Dennis Harvey, 32, of Whitakers. Harvey is the owner of the Double D Ranch where the party was held. He also faces obstruction and a felon in possession of a weapon count. 

The others facing alcohol violations are Jocquez Davis, 26, of Enfield, who was the DJ;

Santeria Woodley and Trakela Holmes, both 34 and both of Rocky Mount.

J. Davis also faces an obstruction count along with Harvey.

“The unlawful and irresponsible sales of alcoholic beverages can often lead to dangerous circumstances and violent outcomes,” said Bryan House, director of ALE. “This joint investigation demonstrates the partnership between ALE and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office. We will continue to work with our local and federal partners across North Carolina to hold those who profit from these crimes accountable.”  

Sheriff Tyree Davis said, “The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is grateful for the technical expertise that ALE has involving these types of matters. Their assistance has been invaluable.” 

Possession of a firearm by a felon

In speaking with witnesses at the scene during the homicide investigation, detectives learned that Harvey was in possession of a pistol.  

Harvey is a convicted felon from a 2019 conviction in Nash County for forgery.  

Due to this conviction, Harvey is prohibited from possessing any firearm at any location including his own property.  

Additional warrants were obtained for Harvey for possession of a firearm by felon.  

Warrants for impeding investigation

Days after the homicide, investigators interviewed J. Davis, also known as DJ Huckle Buck, 26, of Enfield.  

J. Davis, along with Harvey, are considered by investigators to be the persons that were instrumental in advertising and coordinating the party at the Double D Ranch.  

Guyant said when asked pertinent questions related to security, vendors, alcohol sales, and other critical information, J. Davis gave investigators obstructing statements that caused a delay in corroborating and discovering important facts pertinent to the homicide investigation. “Due to these mendacious statements by Davis, investigators charged him with obstructing justice.”  Davis was arrested today and was given a $25,000 bond with a court date of November 29.

Warrants are outstanding on the other individuals mentioned. 

Vehicle stolen from party

Investigators learned that a Chevrolet HHR was stolen from the party.  

The stolen vehicle was later recovered in Hertford County. Through investigative efforts, it was learned that the vehicle was stolen by Quentin Fennell, 35, of Garysburg.  

Warrants were obtained for Fennell for larceny of a motor vehicle.
