RALEIGH — Two men were trafficking in powder cocaine and turning it into crack, police charged when they arrested them Thursday evening.
Officers arrested Dyworisky Lanair Perry, 35, of 24 Mike Court in Franklinton and Roderick Demetrius Daniels, 30, of 603 Apricot Woods Lane in Wendell were in a car together when police stopped it about 7 p.m. at Louisburg and Perry Creek roads in north Raleigh.
The men had, arrest warrants stated, between 28 and 200 grams of cocaine, one of a range of amounts that state law uses to determine felony levels.
The warrants did not disclose the exact amount.
Each was charged with trafficking in cocaine, manufacturing cocaine by “cooking” it into the more potent form known as crack and conspiring with each other to traffic in the drug.
Perry was also charged with maintaining a vehicle as a place to store and sell drugs and misdemeanor marijuana possession.
The men’s bails were set at $300,000 each, and they were being held in lieu of that amount for court dates on Friday.
