Two Arrested For Probation Violation In Durham

Posted April 28, 2003 5:51 a.m. EDT

— Officers from the North Carolina Division of Community Corrections, with assistance from the Durham Police Department, made two arrests during a recent operation in Durham.

Marlon Rand, who was on intensive probation for discharging a firearm into occupied property, was arrested for a probation violation after officers found two .45-caliber bullets in a backpack in his bedroom at 1004 North Street. Rand was arrested last month on heroin sale and possession charges.

Officers also arrested Frederick Maurice Cameron of Weeping Street and charged him with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officers also found 14 grams of powder cocaine, a .22-caliber rifle and a box of .22-caliber bullets in the house. No charges have been filed in connection with the gun or cocaine.

Cameron was released from state prison on February 26, 2003, after serving time for sale and delivery of drugs within 150 feet of school property. He was placed on electronic monitoring as part of a re-entry program following his release from prison. Cameron is also a Durham Police Department STARS offender.

The operation, which lasted from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, targeted a list of people on probation or parole in Durham County and enabled officers to check for any parole/probation violations. Officers checked 24 locations, searched nine residences and made two arrests.

Officers from Community Corrections and the Durham Police Department's Special Operations Division, Gang Resistance Unit, Selective Enforcement Team, District 2 Crime Area Target Team, STARS and Uniform Patrol Bureau participated.

Community Corrections and the Durham Police Department are planning more joint operations to target violent offenders in our community. The Police Department has a zero-tolerance for gun violence.
