WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A check of a suspicious car led Wilmington Police to arrest an alleged heroin dealer early this morning.
At 2:47 a.m. officers responded to a suspicious vehicle in front of 4619 McClelland Dr. with several men and a woman inside. Officers noticed a small bag with a white powder under the passenger seat. When they asked Antonio Nathan Greene what was in the bag, he took off running.
While chasing Greene, officers saw him throw several items on the ground that they later identified as bindles of heroin.
Officers caught Greene, 32, and charged him with two counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver heroin and resisting arrest. He was booked into jail under a $10,000 secure bond.
Court records show Greene was charged last year in New Hanover County with driving while license revoked. The Department of Corrections website shows Greene has a criminal history that includes several convictions on drug charges, possession of stolen goods, larceny, breaking and entering and other offenses.
