Two men charged in meth-trafficking arrests by Raleigh police

From staff reportsMay 2, 2013 

— Two men have been charged in connection with what police allege was trafficking in methamphetamine.

The arrests, on Wednesday, were the second involving trafficking in the drug in just over a week.

Lindsey Scott Thompson, 44, of 7409 Sandy Creek Drive in Raleigh was charged with trafficking based on his having between 28 and 200 grams of methamphetamine, police said in an arrest warrant.

Thompson also was charged with conspiring with Darryl Lee La Face to traffic in the drug.

La Face, 62, of 10421 Rosegate Court in Raleigh was charged with conspiring with Thompson.

Thompson was being held on $250,000 bail for a court appearance Thursday.

La Face’s bail was set at $150,000, and he also was being held for a court appearance.

On April 24, police charged Kevin John Campbell, 32, of 4904 Six Forks Road and Douglas Russell Bellue, 38, of 3920 Westra Drive with two counts each of trafficking in methamphetamine in what police said was Bellue delivering the drug to Campbell.

Officers said they seized 47 grams of the drug in that case.

It was not known if the two arrests stemmed from the same investigation or were unrelated.
