Man Claims He Was Robbed By His Drug Dealer

A Johnston County teenager reported to law enforcement authorities he was robbed by three people including his drug dealer.

Last Friday, the 17 year-old Clayton resident reported he had given a ride to a man he had previously purchased illegal drugs from in hopes he would appreciate the free ride and give him a deal on his next marijuana purchase.

The teen said his alleged drug dealer had him pick up two other people at an unknown location.   A short time later the victim claimed he was assaulted and robbed of his cell phone and $6 in cash.

The alleged robbery happened around 11:30pm just outside the Clayton city limits.   The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
