NC criminal faces life in prison for armed drug dealing, owned by DOJ

NEW BERN, NC (WNCN) – A Red Springs man could face life in prison after being arrested on multiple charges of illegal drug use as well as possession of a firearm by a criminal, the Justice Department said.

According to court records and evidence in a lawsuit, Jamie Christopher Henderson, 47, was being investigated by the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office for a shooting at Thunder Valley Racetrack in Robeson County.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for this investigation of Henderson’s home and discovered multiple guns, multiple drugs, and videos of other crimes during his execution.

The DOJ said three detectives “watched Henderson in the front yard throwing a black handgun under a parked car” when they arrived to exercise the search warrant. They also said they saw bags of drugs they later identified as crack and cocaine.

After the incident, the DOJ said investigators continued to investigate Henderson’s home.

Inside the apartment, detectives found two stolen handguns, an AR-15-style rifle, materials used to distribute drugs, videos showing drug deals, and more crack and cocaine.

“Additional evidence revealed videos of Henderson at the home in the days before the search warrant was executed,” the DOJ report said. “In these videos, Henderson conducted drug deals in the home on seven separate occasions, mostly armed with a handgun.”

The report continued, “The videos also showed that Henderson possessed multiple handguns, sometimes two at a time, and aimed a loaded AR-15 rifle at vehicles in the street that approached the house at night.”

Investigators confirmed that all guns were confiscated and all confiscated were still loaded.

In 2005, Henderson was convicted in the eastern part of the state as a felon with possession of a firearm. On those charges, and those new charges, he faces a mandatory sentence of 10 years to life in prison, the DOJ said. If he is found to be a career armed criminal, that 10 years could be increased to 25, the publication also said.
