Police make arrest after drug deal

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was charged with drug possession after authorities spotted a drug deal taking place at a nearby home and saw a vehicle leaving the area.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Renell Jeffery Parson Jr., 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 grams of crack cocaine and 19.3 grams of marijuana, all less than ounce. The officer also seized $85.
Parson remained in the Rowan County jail Thursday under a $25,000 bond.
His first court appearance is scheduled for today. Parson is also set to appear in court in September on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor.
