A Garysburg man was arrested Saturday morning after a stop for an equipment violation on Boykin near Chockoyotte street.

During the stop, which occurred around 12:15 a.m., Lieutenant J. Baggett discovered Jamison Jelonte Lee had an outstanding order for arrest, Roanoke Rapids police Chief Chuck Hasty said in a statement.

While Baggett was searching the 20-year-old man, Lee reportedly put something in his mouth, pushed away from the lieutenant in an apparent attempt to run away. He later spit the apparent drugs he put in his mouth out.

After a brief struggle Lee was taken into the custody.

Lee faces charges of possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine, possession of schedule II, possession of of marijuana, assault on a government official and resisting/delaying/obstructing an officer. He was also served the outstanding warrant for larceny from a person. He received a $20,000 bond and March 7 court date.

He was allegedly in possession of a combination of crack and powdered cocaine in the amount of 7 to 8 grams and about a gram of marijuana, Hasty said.

The larceny charge against Lee stems from an investigation by Investigator G.L. Williams into a matter reported February 5.  

During an assault, the victim dropped his money and Lee allegedly took it from the floor. He reportedly left with the money as the assault continued.

The assault investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected.

Meanwhile, Lonnie Ray Moody Jr., 26, of Pleasant Hill, a passenger in the vehicle with Lee, was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon after a handgun was found under his seat.  

Moody received a $1,000 bond and February 26 court date.

Sergeant D. Jenkins and Officer H. Grimes assisted.
