RALEIGH — Wake County sheriffs deputies charged two men with cocaine trafficking and other charges and a third man with conspiring to traffic in the drug and seized 2,520 grams (a little more than 5.5 pounds) of cocaine that they said was in a Chevrolet SUV on Six Forks Road.
About 6 p.m., sheriffs deputies arrested Pedro Perez-Perez, 27, and Ismael Arroyo Perez, 25, in a 1991 Chevrolet Tahoe in the 3200 block of Six Forks Road in Raleigh.
Three hours later, Raleigh police arrested Victor Rosales, 26, a few blocks away on Six Forks Road.
Deputies charged Perez-Perez and Arroyo Perez each with two counts of trafficking, two counts of conspiring to sell and deliver cocaine and with maintaining the SUV as a place to store or sell drugs. One trafficking charge involved the 5.5 pounds of cocaine. The second involved 400 grams (about 0.9 pounds) of cocaine.
Police charged that Rosales and Perez-Perez had conspired to traffic in cocaine.
An arrest warrant charging Arroyo Perez lists his address as 19 Summit Ave., in Greensboro.
The warrant that deputies obtained for Perez-Perez lists a Greensborough apartment as his residence, but the report of his arrest lists 5619 Summit Ave. in Browns Summit.
Rosales was identified in an arrest warrant as Jorge Rosales-Beltran, but that last name is listed on the arrest report as an alias. His address is listed as 3221 James Place in Greensboro.
Arroyo Perez and Perez-Perez were each held on a bond of $510,000. Rosales was held on a $25,000 bond. Perez-Perez and Arroyo Perez, both identified as Mexican nationals, were being held for federal immigration authorities to check their immigration status, according to court papers.
All were slated to appear in court on Wednesday.
