Salisbury man gets at least 10 years for multiple felony convictions

Staff report

A Salisbury man already in prison will spend at least another 10 years behind bars after being convicted this week on multiple felony offenses.

Reginald D. Oglesby was convicted in Rowan County Criminal Superior Court of trafficking in opium/heroin, selling a schedule II controlled substance and possession of a firearm by convicted felon.

He also admitted his status as a habitual felon, Rowan District Attorney Brandy Cook said in a news release.

Judge Martin B. McGee sentenced Oglesby to a minimum of 120 months and a maximum of 156 months in prison. That sentence will begin at the expiration of the sentence Oglesby is currently serving in prison for sale of cocaine.

During an ongoing undercover operation from June 2013 to August 2013, Oglesby sold crack cocaine, hydrocodone pills, and dihydrocodeinone pills to an undercover officer. Around September 10, 2013, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at Oglesby’s residence and seized hydrocodone pills, marijuana, $370, digital scales, and a .45 Taurus handgun and ammunition.

Oglesby was previously convicted of felony possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, felony attempted trafficking in cocaine, and felony obtaining property by false pretenses, among other convictions.

Assistant District Attorney Jennifer prosecuted the case.
