A man was arrested Tuesday June 22nd after deputies say he was caught trying to sell drugs in front of a drug rehabilitation centre.

David Graham, a 37-year-old man from Robeson County North Carolina was arrested after deputies received complaints of a suspicious person loitering in the area.

While searching him cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm were found on his person and seized by authorities.

“When this complaint first came into our Drug Diversion Division, I was hoping this was a sick joke,” Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said. “Great investigative work has now led to this arrest for an unbelievable act that I hope and pray leads to stiff justice being served.”

“This is an absolute despicable act,” Wilkins added. “To take advantage of the addicted at a location in which they sought help in fighting the devil. Then the devil himself shows up at the doorsteps of a rehabilitation center with no regard for the human being while only being concerned with profits.”

Graham was formally charged with possession with intent to sell and/or deliver cocaine, maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, possession of firearm by a convicted felon, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held on a $250,000 secured bond.
