Raleigh police file twin drug charges against twin brothers

From staff reportsNovember 9, 2012 

— Police filed twin drug-possession charges early Friday against 25-year-old twin brothers who hold twin jobs, saying in arrest warrants that they had twin possession of marijuana in an apartment.

James William Boykin and Jeremy Thomas Boykin were arrested at the apartment at 1906 Generation Drive, online police reports stated.

The brothers, who both told police they are servers at the same restaurant, were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell or distribute it and with maintaining a residence as a place to keep drugs.

In each warrant, police listed the same 41 grams of marijuana that they said they found. It is standard procedure to cite multiple people for possession of the same drug when they are arrested in the same place at the same time.

Wake County Sheriff’s Office records for the county detention center showed both men had been released on bond later Friday morning.

The arrest warrants list the brothers’ residence as the Generation Drive apartment. The arrest report lists an address in Elm City as the current residence for both.
