SALISBURY — Salisbury authorities say a probation check at a Pine Street home led them to charge three people with a number of drug offenses.

Officials said six different drugs seized were during the search.

Salisbury police assisted the probation office at 7 p.m. Thursday for the search and found drugs in the living room and inside Rankin’s vehicle. Two people inside the home were on probation, said Capt. Shelia Lingle.

When officers found drugs in a room, they backed out and obtained a warrant.

Officers seized 11.6 grams of crack cocaine; 53.6 grams of Ecstasy; 30.9 grams of heroin; 4.9 grams of powder cocaine; 38.2 grams of marijuana; and 10.4 grams of crystal meth.

They also seized a 38 Special revolver and ammunition as well as 10 cellphones and other drug paraphernalia items including scales and plastic bags.

The Salisbury Police Department charged Sebastian Lamon Rankin, 31, of the 800 block of Pine Street, with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture a Schedule II substance; felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II; and felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule VI.

Kennedy Brooke Campbell, 21, of the 2100 block of Brantley Road, Kannapolis, was charged with felony trafficking in drugs; two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule I; felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance Schedule II; two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II; felony trafficking in heroin; felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance Schedule II; and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Dichris Terrell Wood, 29, of the 800 block of Pine Street, was charged with felony possession of a weapon by a felon; felony trafficking in drugs; two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule I; felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell of deliver a controlled substance Schedule II; felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II; felony trafficking in heroin; felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance Schedule II; misdemeanor maintaining a dwelling or vehicle for controlled substances; and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

 

Officials said Wood and Campbell are in a relationship, but it doesn’t appear that Campbell lived at the home.

Wood remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $275,000 secured bond. Campbell remains in the county jail under a $250,000 secured bond. Rankin was released on a $10,000 secured bond.
