Members of the Vance County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest late last week after serving a search warrant at a home located on Raleigh Road.
Rufus Kenneth Williams, 51, was charged with one count of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine and felonious possession of cocaine, according to a press statement issued Tuesday afternoon by Vance County Sheriff Curtis Brame.
Brame stated that a search warrant was issued for 3777 Raleigh Rd. as part of an ongoing investigation into citizen complaints of illegal drug sales occurring at the residence.
Upon service of the warrant, and a brief foot pursuit of the suspect who was later taken into custody, members of the Vance County Sheriff’s Office located and seized cocaine and other assorted paraphernalia related to the sell, possession, and use of illegal narcotics.
Williams was given a $54,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Aug. 28
