ROCKY MOUNT — A big arrest last week demonstrates the primacy of ridding the city of drugs, said Police Chief Robert Hassell.

“Removing illegal narcotics from the streets of Rocky Mount is a priority for our agency,” Hassell said.

To that end, the department’s Special Operations Division executed a search warrant Thursday at 308 N. Howell St., said Cpl. Ricky Jackson, public information officer for the Rocky Mount Police Department.

While searching the home, officers seized 43.45 grams (about 1½ ounces) of powder cocaine, 35.5 grams (about 1¼ ounces) of crack cocaine, 24 grams (0.85 ounces) of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm, Jackson said.

“The Rocky Mount Police Department Special Operation Division investigates all citizen complaints of illegal drug activity within our communities,” Hassell said.

Darius Tiant Henderson, 43, faces a slew of charges, including possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, manufacturing cocaine, trafficking cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Henderson received a $50,000 secured bond.
