A Plain View man is under a sizable bond following an investigation by Sampson County Sheriff’s investigators, who served multiple felony warrants on the man for allegedly being in possession of a key ingredient to making meth.
Christopher Capps, 36, of 141 Renee Lane, Dunn, was charged with four felony counts of possession of pseudoephedrine with a methamphetamine conviction. Capps was arrested at his Renee Lane residence on Friday.
The warrants were taken out three days earlier, on Jan. 26, according to Capps’ arrest report.
He was placed in the Sampson County Detention Center under $200,000 secured bond.
According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Capps has a lengthy criminal record in Sampson and Harnett counties extending from 2006-14. The prior meth conviction came in November 2014 in Sampson County, when Capps was convicted of possessing/distributing a meth precursor, given a suspended sentence and placed on probation stemming from a May 2014 offense.
Additionally, Capps has convictions in recent years in Sampson on charges of larceny, breaking and entering and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance. Previous convictions in Harnett including breaking and entering into vehicles, felony B&E, forgery and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, court records state.
Little information was able to be provided by Sampson sheriff’s officials about the pseudo charges, other than the fact Capps was taken into custody at his home on outstanding warrants.
Lt. Marcus Smith did allude to his criminal record, noting the bond was “set high due to prior convictions.”
