The Roanoke Rapids Police Department reported the following, according to Chief Chuck Hasty:

On Thursday at approximately 10 a.m., the police department received a call about a person trying to sell a stolen firearm at a local business.

The person left before officers arrived.

Officers gave a description and direction of travel.

Officer A. Green conducted a traffic stop in the 800 block of Hamilton Street.  

Dwayne Leon Cameron, 57, of Chocowinity, was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by felon.

He received a $4,000 bond and February 7 court date.

The charges stem from an investigation by Investigator O.L. Wiltsie into a matter reported Tuesday where the firearm was taken during a robbery of a person.

Wiltsie said the robbery occurred on East Chaloner Drive. He declined to discuss specifics as the case remains under investigation.

Master Officer J. Hardy, officers S. Blythe and C. Hagbourne assisted.


On Thursday at approximately 1:30 p.m., Hardy and Hagbourne conducted a traffic stop for a violation on Vine Street near Smith Church Road.

King was arrested and charged with driving while license revoked. He received a $2,000 bond and February 16 court date.
