A man wanted on heroin charges by Raleigh and Durham police was being held on $1.25 million bail Wednesday in Wake County.

Corey Demon McNuckles, 39, of 917 Medina St. in Durham, was arrested Tuesday, records showed.

A magistrate who set bail wrote that Raleigh police and the Wake County District Attorney’s office had said “significant aggravating factors” justified high bail.

Raleigh police charged McNuckles with three counts of heroin trafficking by having between 4 and 14 grams of heroin one day in January.

An arrest warrant also accused McNuckles of conspiring with a man named Angel Duarte-Gonzalez to traffic in heroin by having 28 grams of it on March 30.

Durham police charged McNuckles with having 2 grams of heroin and 1.2 pounds of marijuana with 1,000 feet of the Shepard Middle School on Dakota Street on March 31.

The warrant said McNuckles had first not stopped a car he was driving when police tried to pull him over and then ran on foot from Dakota Street and Elmira Avenue.

Durham police also charged McNuckles with maintaining 917 Medina St. as a place to keep and sell drugs.
