ROCKINGHAM — Deputies have charged two men and a woman accused of selling crack cocaine.

According to investigators with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, several controlled purchases of suspected crack cocaine were made from 52-year-old Chicora Willett Bonds and 53-year-old Ricky Kirven — both of Daniels Street in Dobbins Heights — at a residence on McDonald Avenue in Hamlet.

The two were arrested Feb. 21.

Investigators say they also made several purchases of suspected crack cocaine and prescription pills from 31-year-old Ronnie Leak Jr., of Hinson Court in Rockingham.

Bonds is charged with one count each of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kirven is facing: six counts of maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance; five counts each of selling a Schedule II controlled substance and delivering a Schedule II controlled substance; four counts each of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance and selling or delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school; and a single count of felony possession of a controlled substance.

Leak is charged with: two counts each of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance and possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance; one count of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance; and a misdemeanor count of possession of up to a half-ounce of marijuana.

Deputies booked Bonds into the Richmond County Jail under a $25,000 secured bond, Kirven under a $500,000 secured bond. Leak was jailed under a $35,000 secured bond. They are scheduled to appear in court on those charges March 9.

Online court records show Bonds has a April 3 appearance in Richmond County Superior Court on two counts each of selling a Schedule II controlled substance, delivering a Schedule II controlled substance and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance.

Records show Kirven is due in superior court March 6 on multiple drug charges, including possessing and delivering within 1,000 feet of a school and being a habitual felon.

Leak also has other pending charges, including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen goods and larceny of a motor vehicle.

Kirven has several prior convictions on charges — including possessing and selling a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of stolen goods, food stamp fraud and carrying a concealed weapon — according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

The only prior conviction on Bonds’ record is driving with a revoked license.

Leaks previous convictions include several traffic violations, drug charges, as well as a 2013 conviction on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
