LANCASTER, N.C. — A man is facing charges for trafficking $100,000 worth of cocaine in Lancaster, deputies said.
Lejarvis Anjerel Cloud, 33, was pulled over Wednesday for moving and equipment violations. He was stopped at a convenience store at the intersection of Bailey Road and Kershaw Camden Highway.
Authorities said they smelled marijuana in the car and saw some suspected marijuana in the floorboard. Officials searched the car and found a shoebox in the trunk with cocaine inside it.
Deputies said 2.8 pounds of cocaine were seized as well as $12,126 in cash.
Cloud is facing charges for trafficking more than 400 grams of cocaine. Officials said he was denied bond Thursday.
“This was a major seizure of cocaine. We haven’t seen this much cocaine in one place in a while. It undoubtedly would have been distributed to countless people here in Lancaster County or elsewhere had we not intercepted it. Our agents were alert and perceptive while going about their routine duties and were able to make this significant arrest," said Sheriff Barry Faile.
No other details have been released at this point.
