CARTHAGE — A Jackson Springs man has pleaded guilty to felony charges stemming from a June 2015 drug raid.

Timothy Lee Creed, 57, was convicted of possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine and being a habitual felon Tuesday in Moore County Superior Court, according to District Attorney Maureen Krueger.

A narcotics investigation and search of Creed’s home by the Moore County Sheriff’s Office led to the charges. Krueger said deputies found cocaine in a hidden compartment of an energy drink can and drug paraphernalia and a gun were also seized in the search.

Creed has a long history of criminal convictions in Moore and Hoke counties. He was previously convicted of drug charges as a habitual felon on April 28, 2005.

Senior Resident Superior Court Judge James M. Webb sentenced Creed to a minimum of 6 years and a maximum of 8 1/2 years in prison on the charges.
