Two Salisbury men charged with drug trafficking
Two Salisbury men were charged with drug trafficking after police interrupted an alleged drug deal in a local restaurant parking lot.
The Salisbury Police charged Brian Thomas Honeycutt, 21, of West D Avenue, Apt. 84, and Timothy Earl Misenheimer, 28, of Woodberry Drive, with one count of trafficking opium by transportation and one count trafficking opium by possession.
The incident occurred Tuesday around 4 p.m. in the parking lot of DJs Restaurant, in the 1500 block of West Innes Street.
Officers stopped a red Dodge Neon with three adults and three young children inside. Officers said Honeycutt and Misenheimer had between them 11 methadone pills with the intention of selling them.
A female who was the mother of the three children was not charged and released.
Both men were issued a $75,000 secured bond. Honeycutt remains in the Rowan County Detention Center and Misenheimer has since been released.
Misenheimer has previously been convicted of breaking and entering, driving infractions and drug possession.
