A Charlotte man is facing felony drug charges after Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in Denver.
Peter Jennings Keziah, 31, of 7711 Shadow Lawn Road, was arrested on Jan. 19 at the Murphy Express on Highway 73 in eastern Lincoln County.
Deputies said Keziah was sitting in the vehicle and told the deputy that he was waiting for Lowes to open so that he could look for work with the contractors at the stores.
Deputies asked for permission to search the vehicle and found pill bottles containing several different types of controlled substances, according to a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
Keziah was charged with possession with intent to sell a schedule II controlled substance, trafficking opium or heroin, two counts of possession of a schedule II controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was jailed under a $10,000 secured bond.
