Two local, repeat-offending drug dealers were recently taken off the streets after separate incidents of selling cocaine near schools.
Carrboro Police arrested 42-year-old Mack James Matthew Cameron Monday after discovering an outstanding warrant during a routine traffic stop. He was charged with being in possession of a controlled substance within 1000 feet of a school.
Cameron was first charged in North Carolina with possession of a schedule II substance when he was 23 and was put on probation. However, probation was revoked because he was caught in possession of a schedule II substance again just more than seven months after his first offense on record. For that, he served nearly eight months in jail in Orange County.
Cameron has gone on to serve an additional five years, seven months for multiple drug possession and trafficking arrests.
U.S. Marshals arrested 40-year-old Bobby Lee Davis on Friday in the town of Graham. Chapel Hill police charged him with multiple felonies, including three counts of selling cocaine, three counts of possession of cocaine, and two counts of selling the drug within 1000 feet of a school. Police allege Davis dealt drugs in the Homestead Park area.
