Cary police add charges against man accused of cocaine trafficking, assault

A Friday court date was the second one in two days for a Cary man whom town police charged with cocaine trafficking and threatening to shoot someone during an undercover drug deal.

In arresting Gustavo Adolfo Ramos-Lemus, 27, near his Niles Street home in a mobile home park off Southeast Maynard Road on Wednesday, police charged that he had between 28 and 200 grams of cocaine.

They also charged Ramos-Lemus had a stolen .40-caliber handgun and that during an undercover drug purchase, he “pointed the weapon at the victim and threatened to shoot him.” That brought charges of communicating threats and assault by pointing a gun at someone.

While he was being held at the Wake County Detention Center on Thursday, police took out more warrants, charging him with having cocaine with intent to distribute it, maintaining a place to sell drugs and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Ramos-Lemus had appeared before a judge Thursday on the first charges, and he was scheduled to appear again Friday on the new charges. His bail was upped to $287,500.
