RAEFORD, N.C. (WNCN) — Deputies say a Fayetteville man who threw fentanyl out of his car window at a traffic stop in Hoke County now faces five drug charges.
The Hoke County Sheriff’s Office says Rahsaan James, 46, was being held at the county’s detention center on a $50,000 secured bond following his arrest Thursday.
He is charged with trafficking opiates, possession with intent to sell and distribute cocaine, maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia related to marijuana.
