RALEIGH — City narcotics officers Friday charged two middle-aged men with cocaine trafficking and conspiracy after police seized 44 grams of the drug.
Arrest reports show that police arrested Zenon Jimenez Jr., 47, of 502 Colleton Road in Raleigh was arrested at police headquarters about 11:30 p.m. Thursday. Etanislao Diaz Frias, 52, of 4610 Millbrook Green Drive, Apt. 203, in Raleigh was arrested at the same station about four hours later.
