SELMA – Police officers arrested a passenger who had been on a southbound Amtrak train that pulled into the Selma Train Depot.
Selma Police said they were dispatched August 16 to the Depot to meet an arriving Amtrak train with an unruly passenger on board. Nakia Thigpen, 47, of Chester, Pennsylvania reportedly told officers he had missed his stop in Wilson and his bags had been misplaced.
While speaking with Thigpen, a suspected “crack pipe” fell from his backpack. An officer attempted to detain Thigpen but he reportedly resisted arrest.
After being handcuffed, police said they located 13.4 grams of suspected fentanyl inside a fanny pack.
Thigpen was charged with trafficking a controlled substance and given a $10,000 bond at the Johnston County Jail. No injuries were reported.
