SALISBURY — For the second time in two weeks, a Salisbury couple found themselves in jail on cocaine charges.
Theresa Jackson and Charles Richardson were taken into custody Thursday after authorities said they were carrying 1.6 grams of cocaine and planning to sell it.
Richardson, of East Lafayette Street, and Jackson, of North Shaver Street, were both charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine, according to arrest warrants. They were each given $3,000 bonds.
The two were arrested exactly two weeks ago after Salisbury Police said they attempted to sell cocaine to an undercover officer.
On March 22, the two were taken into custody by the Salisbury Police narcotics unit when they fled through a parking lot near Tinseltown USA.
Authorities seized .07 ounces of crack cocaine from the two during the arrest.
Salisbury Police Detective Mike Colvin made the arrests Thursday. The warrants did not indicate where the arrests were made.
Richardson, 36, and Jackson, 31, were in jail Friday morning.
