RALEIGH — A 63-year-old Raleigh man faces heroin-trafficking and other drug charges after his arrest at a Wake Towne Drive hotel.
Police arrested Maher Mohammad Kunbargi of 3741 Horseshoe Farm St. on Wednesday afternoon at the Extended Stay America at 911 Wake Town Drive, near the I-440 Beltline.
They accused Kunbargi of having more than 28 grams of heroin, which is the threshold for a trafficking charge under state law.
Police did not state in an arrest warrant how much of the drug they found.
Kunbargi also was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of what state law calls a Schedule III drug, a group that includes LSD and numerous other drugs that the law says may lead to “high psychological dependence.”
Kunbargi was being held on $251,000 bail Thursday for a court appearance.
