Captain A.M. Harris said one of the men, William Joshua Scott Thaxton, 22, may be in West Virginia at the moment. He also frequents areas of Littleton, Roanoke Rapids and Halifax.
The other man they are looking for is 21-year-old Saquan Linwood Vincent who lives in the Littleton area.
Harris said there were two sales, one by Thaxton on March 24, and a second one by Vincent on March 27. Both times user amounts of cocaine were sold.
After the first sale on March 24, Thaxton facilitated another deal which was completed on March 27.
Harris said in a statement on March 24 agents received information from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division about a man wanting to sell cocaine.
Agents C.A. Parker and D.W. McKeel followed up and Thaxton reportedly agreed to meet Parker at a convenience store at the intersection of Highway 158 and Thelma Road where the first deal occurred.
Three days later agents continued the investigation and Parker contacted the source of supply and was directed to go to a residence on Faulcon Road in which the man eventually identified as Vincent would sell cocaine in the second deal.
McKeel obtained warrants for the arrest of Thaxton for possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, sell cocaine, deliver cocaine and conspire to sell and deliver cocaine. Vincent has warrants for possession with the intent to sell and deliver cocaine, sell cocaine and deliver cocaine.
“The outcome of the investigations was great,” Harris said in the statement. “Agents worked together to ensure the safety of other agents.”
Thaxton and Vincent are encouraged to surrender to local law enforcement.
