Deputies charge three with drug offenses

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three people in connection with drug sales.
Joseph Lee Alexander, 32, of 230 Geter Road, Woodleaf, was arrested on Jake Alexander Boulevard Monday, charged with selling crack cocaine to an undercover Iredell County officer on June 14, 15 and 21 in Iredell County. The June 14 sale occurred at Cool Springs Elementary School on Highway 64 in Iredell County, according to the report.
Alexander was placed under a $25,000 bond in the Iredell County jail. According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, he has an extensive criminal history, with convictions for felony possession of Schedule II Oct. 17, 2011; felony possession of cocaine on Sept. 17, 2008; possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana on Oct. 26, 1998, possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine on Oct. 26, 1998; and felony possession of cocaine on July 22, 1997; along with misdemeanor conviction on other offenses.
The investigation was conducted by the Rowan, Iredell and Davie County sheriff’s offices.
Rowan deputies saw Alexander going to and from a house at 150 Mahaley Ave. in Salisbury, later identified as a distribution point for marijuana. Deputies stopped a second vehicle driven by Timothy Scott Randleman, 34, of the home.
Deputies then went in to the home and spoke to Yolanda Renee Foster, 35. They then search the house and found a quarter pound of marijuana, along with drug paraphernalia, according to the report. Deputies reported finding a stolen hedge trimmer in the basement, as well.
Randleman and Foster were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, felonious maintaining a dwelling and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Randleman was also charged with possession of stolen property. He was placed under $7,500 bond; Foster received a $2,500 bond.
Randleman, like Alexander, has an extensive criminal record, including communicating threats, assault on a government official, resisting arrest, felonious second-degree burglary and felonious breaking and entering.
