CHINA GROVE — Police have charged two Kannapolis men with trafficking cocaine following an incident involving shots fired at a mobile home park.
Police Chief Hodge Coffield said police received several calls Friday night involving at least two vehicles driving around Lowder’s Mobile Home Park on U.S. 29 while people in the vehicles fired shots in the air and threatened others with guns.
Arriving at Lowder’s, Officer J.S. Washam stopped a 2001 Dodge pickup that fit the description of one of the vehicles.
Washam asked the occupants for permission to search the vehicle and they agreed.
Coffield said officers found 29 grams of powder cocaine with an estimated street value of $3,000.
Police charged Cesar Alfredo Rodriguez, 23, of 100 Akron Ave., and Ivan Leal Rodriguez, 27, of 308 Bell St., both of Kannapolis.
Both are charged with maintaining a vehicle for the purpose of delivering cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine and trafficking in cocaine.
They are being held in the Rowan County Detention Center under $250,000 bond each.
Police also seized the pickup and $1,868 in cash.
