A man who asked police for help unlocking his vehicle Friday while parked in the lot behind the Roanoke Rapids Police Department ended up getting charged on drug counts.
Chief Bobby Martin said while officers helped to get Cedric Carter’s vehicle unlocked they could smell marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.
After opening the vehicle Agent C.W. Batchelor conducted a search and located crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, marijuana and multiple plastic bags.
Carter was arrested and charged for possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine and marijuana, felony possession of cocaine and marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He received an $8,000 bond and December 15 court date.
