SALISBURY — A Salisbury man is facing felony drug charges today after an officer who knew the man had a revoked license stopped his vehicle. The officer seized crack cocaine and Xanax pills from the vehicle, according to a Salisbury Police Department report.

Perman James Oglesby Jr., 55, of the 300 block of South Caldwell Street, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance schedule II, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, driving while license revoked, felony possession of a controlled substance on a penal institution premises, possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer.

The officer stopped a Cadillac car in the 100 block of Statesville Boulevard just after midnight according to a department report. The driver was confirmed to be Perman Oglesby who got out of the vehicle and tried to leave as the officer was checking his information, according to police spokesman Lt. Greg Beam.

The officer informed the man that if he left, the officer would release a K-9, which stopped Oglesby in his tracks, Beam said.

Police found two Xanax bars in the passenger area of the car. While in the county jail, officers found a white rock inside Oglesby’s pocket that tested positive for crack cocaine. He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond.
