A Garysburg man was reportedly found in possession of 62 crack rocks and three bindles of heroin after he attempted to flee a checking station this morning.


Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Deputy J. Comeaux charged Derrick Anthony Younger, 35,  with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver schedule II; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver heroin; maintaining a vehicle, place or dwelling for a controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting a public officer.

He was also served with an outstanding warrant for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
