PEMBROKE — Two Pembroke men face drug charges after lawmen found more than 7 ounces of marijuana and thousands of dollars of cash inside of their vehicle following a routine traffic stop, according to Lt. Charlie Revels.
Derrick Ray Demery, 20, of 128 George and Mollie Road, and Cashley Carl Scott, 25, of 114 Sunshine Drive, were each charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both of the men were taken to the Robeson County jail, where Demery was placed under a $5,000 bond and Scott was placed under a $10,000 bond.
Revels said agents with the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office’s Narcotics Enforcement Team pulled over Demery’s white 2000 Lincoln Town Car at 3:55 p.m. on Tuesday when he was seen driving left of the center line and was not using his seat belt.
Revels said Demery gave agents written consent to search the vehicle and that both men were asked if they had any illegal substances. He said Scott admitted to having marijuana and handed the agents a small bag. They were then asked again if they had any additional drugs and they said no, Revels said.
When Scott was asked to step out of the vehicle, agents found several hundred dollars on the seat where Scott was sitting. Agents then located under the passenger’s seat a large bag containing about 210 grams of marijuana, which had a street value of about $2,000.
Revels said agents found a total of $5,183 on Scott. Revels said Scott had been a target of a drug investigation for the two months leading up to his arrest.
