Suspect Out Of Jail On Bond Rearrested During Search Warrant

A Benson man arrested nine months ago on drug and gun charges was rearrested on similar charges during a raid at his home last week.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division executed a search warrant last Thursday, April 11th at the home of 58 year-old George Dwayne Williams on Chicopee Road in Benson.  During a search of his residence 1.5 grams of suspected crack cocaine and a handgun were allegedly found.

At the time of Thursday’s incident, Williams was out of jail on bond awaiting trial for a July 2018 arrest in Harnett County where he was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Johnston County deputies charged Williams with maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, and possession of a firearm by a felon.  Williams was transported to the Johnston County Jail where he was held under a $200,000 bond.
