ROWLAND — A traffic stop landed two men and about half a pound of marijuana in the custody of the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, according to narcotics officers.
Dakota Watosh Oxendine, 23, was stopped after swerving across the center line on N.C. 710 near Wesley Road on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Sheriff’s Office. When a sheriff’s deputy approached the vehicle, he smelled marijuana coming from Oxendine’s car.
Drug paraphernalia, along with $754 in cash and 225 grams of marijuana were seized, the officer said.
Oxendine, who lives on Cabbana Road in Rowland, is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, conspiracy to sell or deliver marijuana and maintaining a drug vehicle. He has been jailed under a $3,400 secured bond.
A passenger in the car, 26-year-old Dudley Hunt, is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, and conspiracy to sell or deliver marijuana. Hunt, who lives on Annease Drive in Fairmont, was jailed under an $8,000 secured bond.
Hunt was arrested in April when narcotics agents found 60 marijuana plants, several guns and 33 cockfighting roosters in his home.
