A York man with convictions dating back to 1998 that prevent him from having a weapon was arrested Friday by deputies on drug and weapons charges, according to jail records.

The man was charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of drugs with intent to distribute, and possession of marijuana, jail records showed Saturday. The man’s criminal record according to State Law Enforcement Division records includes conviction for assault, domestic violence, and escape from prison.

The York County Clerk of Court public index shows an attempted murder charge against the man was dismissed in December due to insufficient evidence to prosecute him on the charge. Jail records Saturday showed the man was being held on $10,620 bond.  If you or a loved one is facing drug charges, contact the law offices of Reeves, Aiken, and Hightower, LLP to consult with one of our criminal attorneys.  Our criminal attorneys also handle many other types of criminal cases in North and South Carolina.  We are licensed in both North Carolina and South Carolina, where you can contact us at 704-499-9000 or 877-374-5999 toll-free.
