Police serve search warrant, find drugs in apartment
Three people face drug charges after authorities served a search warrant at a Civic Park apartment Thursday morning.
Salisbury Police went to the apartment, rented by Kayla Danielle Jones, shortly before 10 a.m., and discovered ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine in the apartment. Jones, 24, was charged, as were two friends, one of whom officials say was already banned.
Jones was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. She was issued a $500 bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center. A set of digital scales were found in a kitchen drawer. Officials say Smith will likely be evicted from the Salisbury Housing Authority.
Officers found Desjuan Montre Clawson, 22, of the 1200 block of Andrews Street, East Spencer, who was charged with simple possession of marijuana, felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Clawson, who is said to be the boyfriend of Jones, was upstairs with her. He was previously banned from the apartment complex. He has since been released from the county jail under a $3,000 bond.
Jones’ friend, Kyra Suere Robeson-Smith, 33, of the 4600 block of Knob Hill, Kannapolis, was charged with misdemeanor simple possession of marijuana. She was sleeping on the couch in the living room. Robeson-Smith was issued a written promise to appear in court. She is expected in court Dec. 18.
Arrest reports said Robeson-Smith had 0.9 grams of marijuana inside her purse. Jones had a plastic bag with white powder residue and ecstasy or “Molly” in her wallet. The report said Clawson had one gram of powder cocaine, 0.7 grams of marijuana and 3.8 grams of crack cocaine in a pair of jeans that were found lying beside the bed.
