Two Arrested in Statesville on Felony Drug Charges

33-year-old Charod Terron Terry of Lark Glen Drive in Mooresville and 28-year-old Teona Kejohnette Bruner of Ascending Lane in Statesville have both been arrested by Iredell County Sheriff’s Officers. They were each charged with felony possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule II controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of a concealed weapon, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. In addition, Terry was charged with felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, while Bruner was charged with felony maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for use or sale of a controlled substance.

Terry also had outstanding warrants on felony counts of possession with intent to manufacture a schedule II controlled substance and the sale or delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, along with misdemeanor counts of breaking & entering, injury to personal property, driving while impaired, child abuse, and failure to pay child support.

They were arrested last Friday (July 15) when Deputies stopped a vehicle on Amity Hill Road in Statesville after the driver made an illegal U-turn, then attempted to avoid Deputies, who were conducting a license check. Officers spoke with the driver, Teona Bruner, and her passenger, Charod Terry. Deputies noticed that Terry behaved suspiciously and placed his hands between his seat and the passenger door several times.

Deputies asked Terry to open the door and step out of the vehicle. As he did so, Officers saw a handgun where Terry had been seated, along with two plastic baggies. Terry was detained. A records check showed that he is a convicted felon who is prohibited from possessing a firearm. A search of the vehicle was conducted. The two plastic bags contained more than 14 grams of crack cocaine.

Both suspects were arrested without incident and transported to the Iredell County Detention Center. Terry was given a $46,000 secured bond on the criminal charges and a $1,500 cash bond for the child support warrant. Bruner’s bond was set at $15,000, secured. Terry will appear in District Court on August 3, while Bruner’s next court date is coming up on August 5.
