The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Jason Allen Dulin, 31, of the 100 block of Givens Street, with felony possession of a controlled substance schedule II and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and SBI assisted the Salisbury Police Department in serving a search warrant on April 30 in the 1000 block of South Crump Circle in Woodleaf, said Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford.

Investigators were there to look into the April 26 shooting of Jonathan Elijah Ijames, who was killed at an East Lafayette Street apartment complex. During the search, investigators found cocaine and in a book bag. The powdery substance was submitted for testing with the state lab.
