WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Two suspects who were riding in the same car together face separate drug charges after police found them to be in possession of marijuana and crack cocaine.
According to a spokesperson with the Wilmington Police Department, Larry Quintez Parry, 31, was charged with possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana, while 28-year-old Dontae Tyrell Riley was charged with driving during revocation, providing fictitious information and possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine.
The WPD spokesperson says that WPD officers pulled up behind a vehicle in the 1600 block of Church Street around 11:54 p.m. Thursday.
As this happened, the vehicle in front of them immediately pulled over to the side of the road. The two officers then parked behind the vehicle, walked up to it and made voluntary contacts with the occupants.
At this point, one of the officers noticed an open bottle of liquor on the floorboard, as wells an odor of PCP coming from the vehicle.
Officers soon found backseat passenger Parry, to be in possession of 15 bags of marijuana, and they subsequently arrested him.
The driver, Riley, provided a fictitious name. When officers determined Riley’s real identity, they found that he was driving with a suspended driver’s license.
Riley was arrested and searched at the police station, where authorities found him to be in possession of 1.76 grams of crack cocaine that had been separated into 16 rocks bagged for sale.
Riley remains in jail under a $50,000 bond, while Parry is in jail under a $30,000 bond.
