SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was charged with drug possession after authorities spotted a drug deal taking place at a nearby home and a vehicle leaving the area.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Renell Jeffery Parson, 20, of 911 N. Church St., was charged Wednesday with possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance.
A vehicle was stopped at the corner of Standish Street and Brenner Avenue, near Zion Hills Apartments, the report said, and Parson was the driver.
A Salisbury Police officer searched Parson and reported finding 1.7 grams of powder cocaine, 1.1 gram of crack cocaine and 19.3 grams of marijuana. The officer also seized $85.
Parson remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
His first court appearance is scheduled for Friday. Parson is also set to appear in court in September for a carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor charge.
