WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff’s investigators say one of three people arrested for allegedly selling heroin at a Wilmington fast food restaurant is a gang member.
Deputies say Darion Jerod Graham (far left) is a validated member of the Bloods gang, and he will be referred to federal authorities for prosecution. The Sheriff’s Vice and Narcotics Unit says it arrested Graham during a bust at the Chick-Fil-A on Market Street and New Centre Drive.
Officers conducted a brief investigation after receiving complaints that someone was selling narcotics from the business. Detectives arrested Jarvon Andre Everett, who worked at the restaurant, after they say they saw him sell heroin out the back door.
As detectives prepared to approach Everett, they say their timing could not have been better. They say Graham pull into the parking lot, where officers saw him give Everett a Bojangles chicken box, which contained 50 bags of heroin. Deputies arrested Graham and the driver of the car, Tashawna Sade Robinson, along with Everett.
Investigators say Graham, who is unemployed, had more than $1,000 in cash on him when they arrested him.
