ROCKINGHAM — Narcotics investigators with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office have arrested six people on multiple drug charges — for allegedly selling crack cocaine and prescription pills —within a week.

Wednesday, deputies arrested 53-year-old Karen Davis McQueen, of Entwistle Road, north of Rockingham, and 43-year-old Angela Denise Jennings, of Pemberton Lane, west of Rockingham, after they say the women sold drugs to confidential informants during controlled buys.

McQueen is accused of selling prescription pills on three occasions and is charged with: three counts of maintaining a place for a controlled substance; two counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance; two counts of selling or delivering a Schedule IV controlled substance; one count of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance; and one count of selling or delivering a Schedule II controlled substance.

Deputies say Jennings sold suspected crack cocaine from a vehicle on four occassions, and charged her with four counts each of: maintaining a place for a controlled substance; possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance; and selling or delivering a controlled substance.

McQueen was booked into the Richmond County Jail under a $25,000 secured bond, Jennings under a $20,000 secured bond.

The previous day, deputies arrested 24-year-old Kendrick Dezron Little, of Robinson Avenue in Ellerbe, and charged him with one count each of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance and selling or delivering a Schedule II controlled substance, for allegedly selling crack cocaine to an informant.

Little was also served with an outstanding warrant for communicating threats. He was jailed under a $5,200 secured bond.

On Aug. 12, deputies arrested 45-year-old Marcus Anthony Cato, of Homeward Drive in East Rockingham, and 49-year-old Kevin Cornelius Cox, of Richmond Road, for allegedly selling crack cocaine.

Cato was charged with one count each, and Cox four counts each of possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance and selling or delivering a Schedule II controlled substance.

Investigators say Cox also sold the muscle relaxer carisoprodal and opioid painkiller hydrocodone. He also faces two counts of maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and one count each of: trafficking opium of heroin; possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance; and selling or delivering a Schedule IV controlled substance.

Cox was jailed under a $200,000 secured bond, Cato under a $5,000 secured bond.

Two days previous, deputies arrested 41-year-old Jammie Warren Goodwin, of Safie 6th Street in East Rockingham after they say he, “portrayed to be selling a controlled substance prescription pill and sold clonidine pills.”

Clonidine is a medication used to treat, among other things, high blood pressure and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Goodwin was charged with one count each of selling or delivering a counterfeit controlled substance and possession with intent to sell or deliver a counterfeit controlled substance. He was also served with an outstanding probation violation and child support warrants.

He was booked under a $15,000 secured bond on the drug charges and a $32,231.19 cash bond for child support.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
