RALEIGH — Police charged four men with possession with intent to sell heroin, cocaine and marijuana Tuesday night and three of them with illegal possession of a .45-caliber pistol.
Officers also charged a Chatham County man with possession of heroin and a needle.
According to arrest warrants, the charges involve 2.7 grams of heroin (or 90 bindles, which is what drug dealers call a one-use package), 3.6 grams of cocaine, 8.2 grams of marijuana (in 15 bags) and a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun.
The drug quantities were enough for police to charge Kajuan Nakim Wright, 19, of 131 Allen Way in Franklinton; Markeith Centez Squires, 21, of 416 Newcomb Road in Raleigh; Dexter Maxwell, 24, of 311 Primrose St. in Zebulon, and Shaun Maurice Johnson, 22, of 3100 Skycrest Road in Raleigh with possession of each drug with intent to sell or distribute it.
Squires, Maxwell and Johnson were each charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
Wright has no prison record, according to state records.
Arrested for simple possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia was Stephen Anthony Glosson, 29, who gave booking officers an address of 337 Silk Hope Gum Springs Road in Pittsboro but who Raleigh police listed on an arrest warrant as having no permanent address.
Squires, Maxwell and Johnson were being held in lieu of $75,000 bail each.
Wright’s bail was set at $50,000.
Glosson was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
All five were scheduled for court appearances Wednesday.
