LUMBERTON — A Lumberton man who was charged with firing shots in the parking lot of the Fayetteville Road Walmart has been arrested and charged with possession of a substance that may be methamphetamine, the Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
Kevin Junior Grant, 27, is charged with possession with intent to sell or manufacture methamphetamine, maintaining a drug dwelling and possession of drug paraphernalia after a search conducted at 1390 Snake Road “had a postive reaction” for a field test for methamphetamine, sheriff’s Lt. Randy Johnson said.
The substance resembled crack cocaine, but “had a little bit of a different look to it,” he said.
Grant was charged on June 21 with possession of a firearm by a felon after a sheriff’s deputy saw shots being fired from a 2010 Nissan Altima in which Grant was riding, according to Lumberton police Capt. Johnny Barnes. Grant, and three others who were in the vehicle, claimed they had been robbed of $300 at gunpoint but a search of the vehicle revealed a gun, Barnes said.
Grant has previously faced charges of carrying a concealed weapon, drug possession, breaking and entering and larceny.
