Police: ‘ghost gun’, drugs found after car crash at Roanoke Rapids skate park

ROANOKE RAPIDS, NC (WNCN) – What began with police attempting to stop a car for a minor violation ended as a car chase that ended in an accident Monday night in Roanoke Rapids, police said.

An officer attempted to stop the car in the Marshall Street and East 14th Street area around 11:55 p.m. Monday. Instead of stopping, the car accelerated and ran two red lights. It drove to the end of Marshall Street and passed a stop sign, but crashed trying to make a turn, Roanoke Rapids Police Chief Bobby Martin said in a news release.

The car crashed through the fence of a skate park and drove in until it couldn’t go any further. Four people got out and ran away, but an officer was able to arrest three of them, police said.

Inside the car, officers found 0.6 grams of crack cocaine, nearly 20 grams of marijuana and an “AR-15 handgun” and ammunition. Police said the gun was an unbranded “ghost gun.”

The driver, 21-year-old Ahmaad Greene, was charged with felony, fleeing from fleeing, possession with intent to sell and supply a Schedule II controlled substance, possession with intent to sell a Schedule VI controlled substance and to deliver, driving while illegally driving, and a violation of the tail lamp. He received $10,000 bail.

Tylek Smallwood, 20, has been charged with possession of a Schedule VI substance. He was also served with an outstanding Wake County warrant for possession of a VO-controlled substance. He received $1,000 bail.

Zion Jackson, 23, was charged with possession of a VO-controlled substance and posted $1,000 bail.

Martin said the investigation is still active and more charges could be brought.
