A Roseboro man wanted out of Fayetteville was arrested on drug-related charges in Sampson County Wednesday.
According to reports from the Sampson County Sheriff’s Department, James E. Raynor, 39, of 391 Sir Lane, Roseboro, was charged with two felony counts of possession of pseudoephedrine with a prior meth conviction.
Lt. Marcus Smith of the Sampson County Sheriff’s Department reported that agents with the department’s Special Investigations Division received information that Raynor, wanted on charges out of Fayetteville, was living at Sir Lane in Roseboro.
“Agents went to the house, identified the suspect and arrested him on the fugitive warrant,” Smith said.
Prior to his recent arrest in Sampson County, Raynor was convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession and distribution of meth precursor in 2011. In 2008, Raynor was convicted of possession and distribution of meth precursor and exceeding the pseudoephedrine and possession of Schedule II drugs.
According to state laws, Schedule II controlled substances are slightly less dangerous than Schedule I controlled substances, such as heroin and ecstasy. Schedule IV drugs are usually prescribed by medical doctors, but can be addictive.
Smith said there was no further information available at the time. Bond on Raynor was set at $7,000 and his court date is Aug. 28.
