A Greenville man awaiting trail on weapons and drug charges was arrested Wednesday after officers from a special unit of the Greenville Police Department caught him with cocaine, the department reported.

Raheem Jufar Harris, 24, who police say is a known validated Blood gang member, was spotted by officers patrolling in the 1700 block of Myrtle Street on Wednesday, according to a department news release. When officers approached Harris, he discarded an item on the ground, the release said.

Officers searched Harris and the surrounding area and located eight bags of crack cocaine that were packaged for sale, the release said. He was jailed in Pitt County Detention Center under a $500,000 bond.

Harris was awaiting trial on numerous charges including possession with intent to sell and deliver heroin, possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed gun, larceny of a motor vehicle and hit and run. He has served time in the N.C. Department of Correction for weapons charges.

He was arrested by members of the Greenville Police Department’s Gun Violence Reduction Unit, a four-officer team made possible through a hiring grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The unit is tasked with taking a data-driven, proactive approach to reducing violence, the department news release said.

Since the launch of the unit in June 2016, officers have seized nearly 200 weapons, thousands of dollars in U.S. currency, and have made a dramatic dent in street level narcotics sales, the release said. The unit has worked closely with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to enhance sentencing for repeat violent offenders.

The police department’s overarching enforcement strategy aims to join anti-violence resources from federal and local partners, utilizing each agency’s expertise to remove violent offenders from our community, the release said.

Harris on Wednesday was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling place for controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a park, possession of drug paraphernalia and resist, delay or obstruct an officer.

His his previous convictions and pending charges contributed to the $500,000 secured bond.
