A Roanoke Rapids man was charged on fentanyl counts Tuesday following the execution of a search warrant on Wendover Lane.


Captain A.M. Harris of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Agent R.E. Ball arrested and charged 47-year-old John Paul Mills with possession with intent to sell and deliver schedule I, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The search was executed shortly after 1 p.m. by deputies and narcotics agents. Fentanyl and a digital scale were seized.

The search warrant was based on citizen complaints about possible activity.
