Charlotte man charged with drug offenses after traffic stop

Charged

Carlos Deshayne Davis

SALISBURY — A Charlotte man faces marijuana and identity theft charges after a traffic stop on Interstate 85.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Carlos Deshayne Davis, of the 10200 block of Billingham Drive, with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a counterfeit instrument and three counts of identity theft.

Davis was released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond.

Officials said on Thursday, the Sheriff’s Office’s Crime Reduction Unit stopped a silver Dodge Charger in the 74000 block of I-85 North for an expired registration plate.

The driver, Carlos Davis, also had a revoked license. A deputy said he could smell marijuana and asked Davis to step out of the vehicle so he could search it.

Deputies found a small amount of marijuana and what appeared to be counterfeit checks.

Rowan detectives were called to the scene and determined that the checks were counterfeit. Davis also had several fraudulent checks in his possession, a report said.

In January 2018, Davis was arrested by Rowan deputies in the 74000 block of I-85 North on charges of possession of a .380 handgun and possession of marijuana.
