Authorities arrest three after marijuana sale bust

Authorities have arrested three men they say sold about 2 pounds of marijuana to an undercover police officer last week.
Wraymell Jamall Weaks, Jimmy Leverne Toomer Jr. and Wayne Stewart face multiple drug charges.
The bust came after members of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and the Salisbury and Lexington police departments conducted an operation Thursday during which authorities say Weaks, Toomer and Stewart sold an undercover officer the marijuana.
This was the third undercover purchase made from Weaks over a two-month period, according to the Sheriff’s Office. On July 9, Weaks sold .4 grams of crack cocaine to an undercover officer, and on July 14, Weaks sold 10 hydrocodone tablets and .3 grams of crack cocaine to an undercover officer, authorities said.
Immediately following the undercover purchase Thursday, investigators executed a search warrant at Weaks’ mother’s residence, 110 Martin St., Apartment 2, Granite Quarry.
Investigators also received permission from Toomer to search his apartment at 110 Martin St. During these searches, investigators say they located and seized 26 dosage units of hydrocodone and several items of drug paraphernalia.
Weaks, 22, of 190 Berwick Court, Concord, is charged with two counts of possession with intent to sell cocaine; two counts of selling/delivering cocaine; possession with intent to sell a Schedule III controlled substance; two counts of trafficking opium by possession; trafficking in opium by sale; possession with intent to sell marijuana; selling/delivering marijuana; and conspiring to sell marijuana. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $200,000 bond pending a first appearance in court today.
Toomer, 37, of 110 Martin St., Apt. 4, is charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana; selling/delivering marijuana; conspiring to sell marijuana; and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $50,000 bond pending a first appearance in court today.
Stewart, 34, of 587 Union Heights Blvd., Salisbury, is charged with selling/delivering marijuana; possession with intent to sell marijuana; and conspiring to sell marijuana. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $50,000 bond pending a first appearance in court Monday.
