Police: Raleigh traffic stop yields 2.4 pounds of pot

From staff reportsMarch 7, 2014 

— A 27-year-old man was charged early Friday after Raleigh police found what they said was 2.48 pounds of marijuana in his car after they stopped it.

Donovan Jermine Jones was in a 2013 Mazda that police stopped at Interstate 440 and New Bern Avenue about 1:15 a.m., according to an arrest report.

Police charged Jones with possession of marijuana with intent to sell or distribute it and maintaining a vehicle to keep and sell drugs.

Where Jones lives was unclear because an arrest warrant listed his address as Juniper Drive in Wilson, but an arrest report listed it as 4112 Juniper Court in Raleigh. Wake County property records and the Postal Service do not show a Juniper Court home with that number, however.

Milton Leonardo Hagans, 30, of 103 Rubin Court in Cary, was with Jones and was charged with felony conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana, misdemeanor marijuana possession and missing a court date on an earlier charge.

Hagans has court dates this month and next on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge from a 2012 and traffic offenses from 2013, according to court records.

Both men were being held for court appearances Friday, Jones in lieu of $25,000 bail and Hagans in lieu of $10,000.
