A boyfriend and girlfriend were arrested on cocaine and marijuana counts this morning in Weldon.

Captain A.M. Harris of the City County Drug Task Force said 2 grams of crack and a user amounts of marijuana were seized.
The arrests of Theresa Moody, 43, and Tyrell Benjamin, 41, came after Agent C.A. Parker continued to follow up on drug complaints.
During this investigation, complaints of drug sales and the volume of traffic in the area led Parker to apply for a search warrant at a residence in the 700 block of Maple Street.
The search warrant was executed around 7:15 with assistance from the Hazardous Entry and Arrest Team of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.
Agents located crack cocaine, marijuana and several items of drug paraphernalia. The paraphernalia included a spoon with white residue, razor blade and a box of baking soda.
Parker arrested and charged Moody and Benjamin with felony possession of cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana up to one-half ounce.
Moody was also served with an outstanding warrant for trespassing.
Moody received a $3,500 bond and Benjamin a $3,000 bond with a July 5 court date.
Weldon police Chief James Avens said in a statement, “Thanks to the City County Drug Task Force for their hard work and effort to fight the drug problems not just in Weldon but Halifax County.”
