Two Sampson County men are facing felony drug charges in separate drug cases, according to reports from Clinton Police and Sampson County Sheriff’s authorities Monday.
Steven Prentice Williams, 22, of 504 Ferrell St., Clinton, has been charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule VI controlled substance, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, resisting arrest/hinder and delay.
He was additionally charged with stop sign/flashing red light violation, driving during revocation and expired registration following the stop of the 2015 Dodge Charger he was operating.
According to Clinton Police Department reports, Williams was arrested Friday morning on Barden Street. He was reportedly found in possession of 0.3 grams of crack cocaine and 3.2 grams of marijuana.
He was placed in the Sampson County Detention Center under $5,200 secured bond.
The next day, a Roseboro man was also served felony drug charges in a separate case that involved prescription fraud and drug trafficking.
Initial information was received by Sampson County Sheriff’s authorities of prescriptions being fraudulently obtained in Roseboro and the case was subsequently investigated by the Sheriff’s Special Investigation Division, whose agents developed probable cause to take out warrants. Those warrants were served on Nesbitt at the magistrate’s office by Clinton Police.
Jarvus Keon Nesbitt, 28, of 2538 Old Mintz Hwy., Roseboro, received felony charges of trafficking opium or heroin and conspiring to traffic in opium and heroin.
He was placed in the Detention Center under $40,000 secured bond and was bonded out shortly thereafter.
