LINCOLNTON, NC (WBTV) – A former inmate and member of a white supremacist prison gang was arrested again in Lincoln County after more than $1,000 worth of meth and heroin were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop, according to police.
Jeremy Lee Mays, who goes by “Mayhem,” is charged with DWI, PWIMSD methamphetamine, trafficking heroin by possession, trafficking heroin by transporting, careless and reckless driving, failure to maintain lane control, DWLR, failure to wear seat belt, and failure to stop for a red light.
When he was arrested, Mays was also served with outstanding warrants for common law robbery, assault on a female, and unauthorized use of motor vehicle out of Onslow County.
The arrest came at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday when Lincolnton police officers were dispatched to the area of East Main Street and East Gaston Street, near U.S. Highway 321, to assist NC troopers with a vehicle stop. Officers said a “significant amount of heroin and methamphetamine” were found in Mays’ possession.
Investigators said the heroin was over the threshold weight for trafficking, and that the heroin and methamphetamine was packaged “in a manner that was indicative of trafficking, selling, and delivering the drugs.”
The street value of the seized narcotics is between $1,000 and $1,500, according to the report.
Mays, according to officials, is a member of the “Bound for Glory Gang,” which is a white supremacist prison gang. Police said he has prior convictions for felony assault inflicting serious bodily injury, robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony larceny, felony breaking and entering, and felony first degree arson.
“Hard work and cooperation between the Lincolnton Police Department and the North Carolina State Highway Patrol led to the arrest of a validated gang member and the seizure of a significant amount of illegal drugs off the streets,” said Lt. Jason Munday of the Lincolnton Police Department.
