— Police charged a city resident with cocaine possession early Wednesday and served him with a warrant charging him with attempted first-degree murder in Harnett County.

Samuelle Breshaun Corbett, 21, was arrested at a Walmart store on Fayetteville Road in Garner at about 1 a.m., police reported.

Raleigh police accused him of drug possession and of identity theft, saying that when approached on Oct. 11 about the Harnett warrant, he showed police another man’s driver’s license.

Corbett is accused in Hartnett of driving Chad Terrell McNeill to Angier on Aug. 25 to shoot a man named Lindsey Tearry. That allegation led to the attempted-murder charge and to a felony conspiracy charge. McNeill was arrested a few days later.

Tearry and Corbett are listed in state prison records for arrests and convictions involving drugs and assault, and Corbett was most recently released from prison in April.

McNeil has a record that involves drugs, but no assault charges.

The Hartnett and Wake County warrants list Corbett’s address as 3202 Calumet Drive, Apt. F. A report of his arrest Wednesday, however, says he lives at 320 N. Fisher St. in Raleigh.

Corbett was being held on a total bond of $777,000 for all the charges pending a court appearance later Wednesday.
