Four face drug charges in Goldsboro

Posted February 8, 2013

— A Goldsboro man who drove up to a home as authorities were searching it for drugs was arrested after leading deputies on a car chase as he tried to get away, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

Three other men were also arrested in the search, which happened Tuesday at the home at 170 Best Ave. in Goldsboro. Deputies worked with agents from the Office of Special Investigations at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to execute a search warrant at the home, following an investigation into reports of drugs being distributed there.

Deputies said Corey Ramon Best Jr., 19, of the 1600 block of Cuyler Best Road, drove up to the home, saw deputies and fled. Deputies chased him to John Court, where he was arrested.

Best is charged with felony speed to elude arrest, possession with intent to sell and distribute marijuana, maintain a vehicle for controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held on $5,000 secured bond.

DeRontae Artis, 19, of 170 Best Ave., was charged with possession with intent to sell and distribute marijuana and maintaining a dwelling. He was held on a $2,000 secured bond.

Aquavis Daniels, 19, of 170 Best Ave., and Kadeem Harris, 18, of 1104 Sunburst Drive, Goldsboro, were charged with one count each of possession with intent to sell and distribute marijuana. They were each held on a $1,000 bond.

    "Deputies chased him to John Court, where he was arrested."

    Dumb criminal with a getaway plan that ends in a court.

    Enough is enough---all of your points are wrong, a stoned out state isn't good for anyone, hey- why not legalize hit men so the state can tax them too

    Wage slave---Those are all good uses that have positive results

    Hilarious this is posted as a story. Seriously, there is probably dozens of pot bust everyday. Did they have a couple ounces to have such low bails, come on.

    A man trying to make a profit with no victim. And social "conservatives" LOVE the drug laws. Why the class warfare? LOL

    Don't think they care too much about it either, look how low the bond is. The other guy's would of be lower too if he didn't lose his head.

    Must be hard to sell meth, crack, heroin with all these pot dealers running around.

    marijuana? really? that is a waste of good resources. Marijuana should be legal and one day will be. This state could certainly benefit from doing so. Marijuana is grown here all across the state. It should be regulated and taxed. We need to stop filling our jails with non-violent offenders.

    To much money against. Hemp for Medicene, ethanol, and wood products are scary to Big Pharma, Big paper and corn industries. I dream of the day we use this plant for all its untapped resources.

    Look at Henry Fords Hemp prototype car. Built from Hemp resin, and fuel from ethanol made from hemp.

    Go after the ones committing medicaid/medicare fraud. That would save this state a lot more money than wasting tax money on this so called "war on drugs".
