ROCKINGHAM — Hamlet police arrested a man on drug charges just weeks after he was convicted on cocaine charges from earlier this year.
Damion Rashun Mosley, 21, of McGirt Road in Hamlet, was found on Seaboard Street in Hamlet near the Hamlet Housing Authority, according to Capt. Randy Dover. Mosley has been banned from all housing authority properties, Dover said.
Mosley was accused of carrying 1.3 grams of cocaine in his 2005 Chevrolet Impala, according to arrest warrants. Mosley also was accused of possessing marijuana and cigar wrappers. K-9 Edy identified the drugs in the vehicle.
Mosley is charged with one felony count each of possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, and maintaining a vehicle for keeping and selling a controlled substance. He also is charged with one misdemeanor count each of possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
Mosley was convicted on Aug. 10 of felony possession with intent to sell and maintaining a place for keeping, and felony selling a controlled substance on Aug. 10, according to N.C. Department of Public Safety records.
He is being held at the Richmond County Jail under a $25,000 secured bond. Mosley is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
State court records show Mosley has not previously been incarcerated in North Carolina.
Handicapped man beaten, robbed of prescription opiates
Law enforcement officials in Union County say a Rockingham man assaulted a handicapped man while he sat in a recliner.
Jamie Llord Harris, 35, of Mill Street, allegedly grabbed the man around the neck from behind and pulled him backwards, choking him, and then punched him three times in the face and forehead, according to warrants for Harris’ arrest.
The warrants show Harris then stole three pill bottles, which contained 55 morphine pills, 55 oxycodone pills and 15 Neurotin pills, respectively, and a pocket knife, and a wallet containing $15 and assorted cards.
The victim told police he has experienced pain and discomfort that made it difficult for him to turn his head or swallow. It is unclear whether of not the victim was seated in his home at the time or elsewhere, based on the information available in the warrants. It also is unclear if Harris knew the victim had the drugs with him before the alleged assault.
Harris is charged with one felony count each of common law robbery and assault by strangulation, and one misdemeanor count of assault on a handicapped person.
Harris was jailed under a $75,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 17.
State Department of Public Safety records show Harris recently ended a 10-year-three-month stint in prison for an April 2007 conviction on four felony counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one felony count each of second-degree murder and armed robbery.
Harris’ parole ended on April 18.
Rockingham man found with more than pound of pot, ecstasy
The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jonathan Clay Dockery, 39, of Sandhill Road, for multiple drug charges.
Dockery allegedly was in possession of 496 grams of marijuana, 20 ecstasy pills and a .25-caliber Beretta handgun while in his gold 2006 BMW, according to arrest warrants. The warrants show he also was in possession of digital scales and cigars at the time of his arrest.
Dockery is charged with one felony count each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a Schedule I controlled substance; possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a Schedule VI controlled substance; and maintaining a vehicle for keeping and selling a controlled substance.
He was placed under a $15,000 secured bond at the Richmond County Jail. Dockery is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 20.
N.C. Department of Public Safety records show that Dockery has been incarcerated once before for an October 2005 conviction of one misdemeanor count each of maintaining a place for keeping and selling a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He served one month in prison for these offenses, according to state records.
