A Wake sheriff’s deputy stopped a car in South Raleigh this month for a moving violation. The deputy searched the stopped car and discovered enough opiate medications in the trunk to stock a drug store: more than 400 milliliters liquid Promethazine-Codeine, 329 morphine sulfate pills, 307 Oxycodone pills and 17 methadone hydrochloride pills.
Last week, police charged the stopped motorist, Jordan Alec Gentri, 19, of Clayton, with robbery with a dangerous weapon of the Rite Aid store on Kildiare Farm Road in Cary. Gentri also was charged with trafficking in opium or heroin.
Detectives on Monday took into custody a teen who they think gave Gentri the drugs and charged him with the Rite Aid robbery.
Seth William Beahm, 17, of 5221 Dutchman Drive in Raleigh, has been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to an arrest warrant filed Monday at the Wake County Magistrate’s Office.
