A Wilson man faces charges after a traffic stop led to the seizure of drugs and a stolen handgun.
On March 16, Wilson police conducted a traffic stop in the 3000 block of Raleigh Road Parkway. While conducting the stop, officers saw marijuana inside the vehicle, which was driven by 21-year-old Kahdeem Nakie Hinnant, according to Sgt. Steve Stroud.
Officers searched the vehicle and found 6 grams of marijuana, 14 doses of MDMA and a stolen handgun, police said. The handgun was reported stolen in Raleigh, Stroud said.
Police arrested Hinnant and charged him with possession of a stolen firearm, possession of Schedule I controlled substance, possession with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule I controlled substance, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a place or vehicle for controlled substances and carrying a concealed weapon.
Stroud said Hinnant was jailed without bond because he was on pretrial release after posting bail on unrelated charges.
