A Durham man was being held on $5 million bail Friday on multiple drug charges, including trafficking in opiates and cocaine, after police narcotics officers raided a Horton Road house.
Police assigned to the Interdiction Unit of the department’s Special Operations Division went to the single-family house at 847 Horton Road on Thursday and arrested Robert Dewayne Haskins, 36, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.
Haskins was named in arrest warrants that accused him of trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in opiates, three counts of gun possession by a felon, two counts of possessing stolen guns, and numerous counts of maintaining a place to keep and sell drugs, selling and delivering drugs and possessing drugs with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver them.
The trafficking charges come into play when certain quantities of drugs are involved, and those felonies carry higher penalties for convictions.
Never miss a local story.
Michael said officers seized 175.8 grams (6.2 ounces) of cocaine base, 52.6 grams (1.8 ounces) of powder cocaine, oxycodone pills, Percocet pills and marijuana.
Two of the three guns police found had been reported stolen, she said.
Haskins also was charged with misdemeanor child abuse because two children were at the home, police said.
Haskins’ felony convictions include cocaine possession in 1996 and 1997 and cocaine trafficking in 2005. Felons are not allowed to have firearms.
