SALISBURY — Rowan authorities say they have arrested three people who were on the Sheriff’s Office most wanted list, and they are still seeking the public’s help in arresting two others.

Damion Morrow, 37, was charged Friday after he turned himself in at the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Morrow was charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Salisbury Police also served warrants they had issued for Morrow, a statement said.

Morrow has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center. He was removed from the most wanted list.

Authorities also removed Charles Milton Davis Jr. from the most wanted list. Davis, 51, was arrested by Salisbury Police on Brenner Avenue as part of the sheriff’s countywide drug round-up, the statement said. Davis was charged with felony trafficking in heroin. He was placed in jail under a $75,000 secured bond and has since been released.

Jessie Payne Purvis was arrested and has since been released from the jail. She was arrested by Rowan Sheriff’s detectives at a residence on Menius Road. She was charged with two counts of felony trafficking opium/heroin. Both she and Davis were part of a countywide drug dealer sweep, officials said.

Officials are asking for help in finding Parrish Nathaniel Jefferson, 25, who is being sought on felony possession with intent to sell and deliver and felony trafficking heroin.

Detectives are also looking for Allan Wayne Summers, 40. Officials say he is being sought on felony possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule III controlled substance.

Anyone with information about Parrish Jefferson and Allan Summers is asked to contact Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Detective Greg Bacote at 704-216-8772.
