Perry was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of counterfeit money. Perry received a $2,000 bond and was transported to the Edgecombe County Jail.

Also just after 11:00 p.m. Friday, another drug arrest took place on D.S. Pearl Street.

Police went to the apartment to serve a warrant on 27-year-old Tronyale Daniel and ended up arresting 23-year-old Jessie Lynch.

Police say they smelled marijuana upon their arrival, so they got a search warrant.

Officers say they found 12.28 grams of cocaine and $360.

Lynch was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, felony possession of cocaine and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Warrants were obtained on Daniel for the same narcotics charges as well as maintaining a vehicle and maintaining a dwelling. Police say Daniels may be operating a Gray 1995 Cadillac Deville, NC Registration YWZ-9143 or a Green 1998 Honda Accord, NC Registration YWZ-9254.

      They already smoked it. Don't you know that the smell of marijuana lingers. Normally, if there is one drug, there is another. Hello, this is RMT we are talking about. Bout time, the cops start arresting people for it. There is nothing but crime & drugs here.....

    WOW! Big bust in Rocky Mount.I sure hope the amount stated was a mistake,because if it is not I want some of my TAX money back.Does the Rocky Mount police department really have nothing better to do? What about a summons?I have forwarded this story to the Governors office and have asked for a cost breakdown of this arrest.

    It's more safe than going after the gang-bangers.

    2.33 grams? What a waste of manpower and money, that is ridiculous.

    Shouldn't the law enforcement be spending its time/money taking finding the guys killing people instead of arresting people for posession of 2.33 grams of weed and a bowl, oh and lets not forget the single $10 counterfeit bill that he's getting another charge for. This is crazy business.

    I worked for federal Law Enforcement for over 30 years and in all that time, I have never seen an arrest for 2.33 grams of marijuana.Was this a typo?I sure hope so.
