— Narcotics officers said they seized 15.4 pounds of cocaine and 8.8 ounces of heroin Thursday when they charged two men with drug trafficking and conspiracy.

Jose Andrade Adame, 37, of Raleigh and Sheldon Obryan Silver, 37, of Henderson were each being held on $2.5 million bail for court appearances Friday.

The charges, filed by Wake County sheriff’s deputies, were part of a continuing anti-drug effort by a task force that uses personnel from local, county, state and federal agencies.

Deputies stopped the men at Glenwood Avenue and Lead Mine Road in north Raleigh shortly before 5 p.m., according to arrest reports.

Adame is charged with two counts of heroin trafficking and two counts of cocaine trafficking, and arrest warrants said police found 7 kilograms of cocaine, equivalent to 15.43 pounds, and 250 grams of heroin, which is more than half a pound.

Two other counts in the warrants charge Adame with conspiring with Silver.

Arrest warrants charge Silver with three counts of heroin trafficking, one of them saying he delivered it to Adame.

Silver also is accused of one count each of conspiring to traffic in heroin and traffic in cocaine.

The warrants and an arrest report list Silver as living at 95 Mallard Lane in Henderson and say he is an electrician for Atlantic Workforce, a staffing agency that lists offices in North and South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

Adame is listed as living at 6620 Brock Glen Way in Raleigh, but there is no record of such a street in the Wake County database.

Adame’s occupation is listed as being a truck driver for a company called JJ Towing.
