Raleigh police charge Garner man had 2 pounds of cocaine

From staff reportsApril 22, 2014 

— Narcotics officers arrested a man from Garner early Tuesday on a cocaine-trafficking charge for having what they said was more than 2 pounds of the drug.

Raleigh police were working with officers from other jurisdictions when they stopped Erron Dell Walker, 31, of 1101 Curtiss Drive in Garner on Garner Road.

According to an arrest warrant, police found 994 grams of cocaine.

A magistrate set Walker’s bail at $400,000, and he was being held in lieu of that for a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

The arrest was Walker’s third on cocaine charges in less than two years.

He was arrested Aug. 5, 2012, and June 28, 2013, on charges of possession cocaine with the intent to distribute it.

He also was arrested in July 1999 on a charge of possession with intent to sell and received a suspended sentence in 2000, and on the same charge in April 2002.

The 2002 conviction sent Walker to prison for seven months.

In 2010, Walker and his father Eric Dell Walker, then 47, were charged with selling counterfeit clothing from their EZ Jeans store on Garner Road.

Erron Walker also was charged with possession of a gun by a felon and possession of a stolen gun, and he served about 19 months in prison.

Eric Walker was convicted and served about 15 months.
