Police arrested a 20-year-old man on cocaine charges Wednesday – twice.
Terrence Donte Hunter was arrested about 1 a.m. and charged with cocaine possession, which is always a felony under North Carolina law.
Hunter was freed on bail.
About 9 p.m., police went to the house where he lives, at 2711 Little John Road, and charged him with cocaine trafficking after finding what they said was about 28.5 grams (1 ounce) of the drug.

Along with trafficking, detectives charged Hunter with maintaining the house as a place to keep and sell drugs and with cocaine possession. All are felonies.
A magistrate set Hunter’s bail after the nighttime arrest at $250,000, and he cited Hunter’s being on probation until October because he was given a suspended sentence after being convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
Hunter was due in court Thursday on the trafficking and other felony charges.
