Police: Search for one suspect leads to the arrest of another
Police charged a Salisbury man with drug possession charges while searching for another man who had an active arrest warrant.
Dwayne Jaquan Means, 22, whose address is listed as the streets of Salisbury, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He also had warrants taken out by Spencer police for felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree burglary charges that stemmed from an April 2014 incident.
He was also served with a warrant from May 2013 for misdemeanor probation violation.
Members of the Police Interdiction Team spotted Means walking, and then he ducked into a home in the 700 block of Reeds Lane. Officers knocked on the door, but no one opened it.
Police caught Means as he ran out the back door. A report said officers could smell marijuana coming from the house. The occupants gave officers permission to search the home.
Officers found 4.7 grams of marijuana, digital scales and smoked marijuana blunts.
Means remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $65,000 secured bond.
Means was convicted in 2013 of misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer. He was convicted in 2011 of misdemeanor marijuana possession and in 2009 of misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon.
