Police on Wednesday charged a man drug trafficking that they said involved a little more than 12 pounds of marijuana and that led to the same charge against a woman arrested Monday.
Jose Manuel Felix, 29, of 2631 Dutch Grove Circle in Raleigh was charged with marijuana trafficking, maintaining a house at 7203 Newport Ave. to keep and sell drugs, gun possession by a felon and having drug paraphernalia.
Felix had a two-shot .45-caliber handgun, police charged. He had been convicted in 2011 of felony marijuana possession, police said in lodging the gun charge.
Monday, police arrested Kristi Nicole Thompson, 30, who lives at the Newport Avenue house. She was charged with marijuana trafficking, maintaining the house and possessing drug paraphernalia.
Felix was held overnight Wednesday in lieu of $201,500 bail and scheduled for a court appearance Thursday.
The arrest warrants for Felix and Thompson said the drug had been at the house on Aug. 30.
