A Durham man was being held on $5 million bail in Raleigh on Wednesday after police charged him with having over 10 pounds of marijuana in a North Hills apartment.
Messiah May, 34, was arrested at the apartment in the building at 200 Park at North Hills St. shortly after 7 a.m., records showed.
According to the charges, May had the minimum amount of marijuana required for a charge of trafficking, 10 pounds, but the charge said only that the quantity was between that and 49 pounds.
Fifty pounds is the threshold for the next-highest category of trafficking.
