ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WITN) - Rocky Mount police say a man has been arrested after he was wanted since Saturday on drug trafficking charges.

The Rocky Mount Police Department says Jarroy Dickerson was stopped in a vehicle Monday in the 1600 block of Lynne Court and served the felony arrest warrants. Dickerson was jailed and given a $250,000 bond for trafficking heroin, $10,000 for possession of a firearm by a felon, and a $5,000 cash bond for probation violation.

We’re told by police that they were called to the 700 block of South Pine Street on Saturday at noon in reference to a domestic situation involving Dickerson, who had several active felony warrants.

Police say a witness told them Dickerson had walked into the home just before they arrived. Officers surrounded the place and were allowed a consent search inside.

We’re told that officers used a drone and K9 to clear the home, and when officers were inside, they found a large amount of heroin and an apparent packaging operation.

After a search warrant, officers say they seized 745 individual bindles and 8.1 grams of heroin and other related paraphernalia.
