Drugs seized, three arrested following traffic stop

SALISBURY — Authorities found cocaine, hydrocodone and marijuana following a traffic stop and subsequent house raid Tuesday afternoon.
Salisbury Police narcotics officers arrested Jimmy Lewis Oglesby, Reginald Dean Oglesby and David Lewis Crockett Jr. after police stopped their vehicle near Jake Alexander Boulevard and Mooresville Road.
Inside the vehicle, authorities found 21.7 grams, or .77 ounces, of crack cocaine and 20 hydrocodone pills.
Investigators followed the stop by executing a search warrant on Jimmy Oglesby’s home on Heilig Avenue. There, officers found an additional 18.2 grams, or .64 ounces, of marijuana.
Authorities said the traffic stop came on the heels of concerns voiced to police by community members of a neighborhood near Lincolnton Road. The report said a neighborhood watch group has been on the lookout for possible drug activity, but the report did not indicate if officers were tipped off prior to the stop.
According to the North Carolina Corrections’ Department, Jimmy Oglesby, 29, and Reginald Oglesby, 37, have previously been convicted of possession with intent to sell cocaine and possession of cocaine.
Reginald Oglesby, who was released last January after he was convicted of several felony drug charges, also has prior convictions of trafficking drugs.
Each suspect was placed in Rowan County jail under a $500,000 bond.
