SALISBURY — A Salisbury man faces felony drug and a weapons charge this week after he was pulled over during a task force crackdown, according to Salisbury Police officials.

Salisbury Police charged Timothy Paul Wiseman II, 24, of the 400 block of North Craige Street, with misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer; felony possession of a firearm by a felon, and felony possession with intent to manufacture a controlled substance schedule VI.

On June 9 the police department’s task force was in the area of Park Avenue when they spotted a Chevrolet go through a stop sign at Park Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.

The officer activated his lights and the driver pulled up to a curb and got out of the vehicle. The officer noted it looked as if Wiseman was taking off his sandals. A report said Wiseman then took off running nearing Cemetery Street. He cut through the back yards of two homes. He was stopped at gunpoint by an officer at a home near East Cemetery and North Shaver streets.

When the officer approached Wiseman, he had his hands near his waist area. The officer told Wiseman to remove his hands from that area.

Upon his arrest, Wiseman had a marijuana roach, marijuana, glass jars with marijuana inside it, digital scales, plastic bags, a smoking device and cigarillos. Officers said he had a total of 7 grams of marijuana and $392 in cash.

He remains in the Rowan County jail under a $40,000 secured bond.
