3 Charged In Princeton Drug Bust

Two men and one woman were arrested late Monday after a quantity of marijuana and methamphetamines were reportedly found inside of a home near Princeton.

Around 5:45pm, Johnston County deputies went to a home in the 700 block of Baker’s Chapel Road in an attempt to located 55 year-old Ronald Colvin Narron II to serve an arrest warrant. Narron reportedly failed to appear in court recently on a charge of felony meth possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

After approaching the front door of the home, officers said they detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the dwelling.  It took several minutes before someone would answer the door.

During a search of the property, officers said they found two pounds of marijuana and 1.7 ounces of methamphetamine. The drugs had a potential street value of $8,760.  Deputies also seized 7 syringes, a telephone, digital scale, and a back pack.

Narron along with Wesley Ryan Moore, 34, of Lori Drive, Pine Level and Brandy Jean Johnson, 34, of Boyette Circle, Smithfield were all charged with felony possession of methamphetamines, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, conspiracy to sell or deliver marijuana, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Narron was also served with the two outstanding arrest warrants.  Narron was confined in the Johnston County Jail under a $120,000 bond.

Moore and Johnson were both held under $80,000 bonds.
