Man charged for third time this year with intent to sell marijuana

By Ron GallagherOctober 31, 2012 

GARNER Police arrested two men Tuesday night on charges that they conspired to sell marijuana to another man, and it was the second arrest this month and the third this year on similar charges for one of the two.

Faisal Tyler Moghadass, 20, who listed himself as a Wake Tech student, was with Rashad Akeem Woodard, 23, in Moghadass’ 2000 Acura with North Carolina license plate “FAISAL” when police stopped them on Aversboro Road, according to arrest reports.

Officers charged in a warrant for Moghadass’ arrest that they found 250 grams – a little over a half-pound – of marijuana.

Moghadass, of 606 Nellane Drive in Garner, was arrested by Garner police Oct. 9 on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell or deliver it and with maintaining a vehicle to keep drugs.

On April 27, Raleigh police charged him with marijuana possession with intent to sell or distribute it, possession of cocaine and maintaining a vehicle.

Moghadass also was arrested by Raleigh police in April 2010 at Millbrook High School and charged with drug offenses, having a weapon on school property and other counts.

Tuesday night, Moghadass was charged with two counts of selling or delivering marijuana, one count of possession with intent to sell or deliver, one count of felony marijuana possession and two counts of conspiring with Woodard.

Magistrates set his bail at $50,000 and filed a notice that he was arrested while on probation.

Woodard was charged with felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell or distribute, selling and delivering marijuana, maintaining a vehicle and conspiracy.

Woodard was released on bond.

After Moghadass’ arrest at the high school in 2010, he was convicted of misdemeanor larceny and paced on probation. The drug and weapon charges were all dropped by the Wake County District Attorney’s office, according to records filed with his Tuesday arrest.

After his April arrest this year, he was convicted on possession of drug paraphernalia and ordered to enter drug treatment. The drug charges were dismissed by the DA’s office.
