The City County Drug Task Force and Roanoke Rapids police investigators returned to a reputed trap house on Zoo Road North today.

During a search of the residence agents seized 16 grams of marijuana, 4.3 grams of cocaine, eight oxycodone pills, heroin wrapped in lottery tickets and a digital scale.  

Captain A.M. Harris of the task force said occupants of the residence reportedly tried to flush some items as agents attempted to make a forced entry into the house.

The return to the residence in the 800 block of Zoo Road North was based on alleged evidence of traffic for the purpose of drug activity coming to and leaving the house despite a major bust there last week.

A trap house is common among drug dealers, who will either rent or a buy a house to sell drugs from instead of selling from their own residence. Some dealers will allow addicts to use in the trap houses.

In a raid last Friday agents levied heroin trafficking and other charges

Agent D.J. Epperson arrested and charged Alphonso Williams, 29, of Roanoke Rapids, for felony possession of heroin and Audwin Parker Jr., 28, of Roanoke Rapids, for felony possession of cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, simple possession of schedule II controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

Williams received a $2,000 bond and Parker a $5,000 bond. Both have December 20 court dates.

The names of Williams and Parker came up during initial investigation of the house, Harris said.

Harris said nuisance abatement proceedings are a possibility as agents attempt to determine who owns the house and who is renting it.

 

Traffic stop

 

On Tuesday around 3:30 p.m., Epperson conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a violation on West Tenth near Burton streets.

Cocaine, two bags of marijuana and a marijuana grinder were seized.

Epperson arrested and charged Brian Eugene Luckey, 40, of Highway 158, for felony possession of cocaine, possess marijuana up to one-half ounce and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

He received a $750 bond and November 15 court date.  

Agent D.R. Radford assisted.
