44-year-old Kevin Brian Wood of Icard Dairy Farm Road in Connelly Springs was arrested by Hickory Police at about 5:40 Friday afternoon on one felony count of possession of a schedule II controlled substance and misdemeanor counts of resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer and displaying a fictitious, revoked or suspended registration. He also had a warrant for assault on a female, issued in November of last year.

Wood was arrested after Officers saw a suspicious vehicle at an address on 23rd Avenue N.E. in Hickory. The vehicle, a 2003 Ford Escape, was driven by Wood with two passengers. Officers searched the vehicle and found two bags of methamphetamine with a total weight of one gram. Police also found a fictitious license tag in the vehicle’s trunk area.

Wood was charged with resisting after he gave Police a false name. His true identity was discovered as he was processed at the Hickory Police Department. At that time, Officers found the outstanding assault warrant for Wood’s arrest.

The other two persons in the vehicle were not charged or cited.

Wood was placed in the Catawba Co. Detention Facility under a $17,000 secured bond. He was scheduled to make a first appearance in District Court today in Newton with another court date on the assault charge set for February 13.  Court today was canceled as a result of inclement weather.

The arrest stemmed from an undercover investigation which was conducted by members of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigation Unit. Investigators received information about “Crack” Cocaine being brought into Iredell County. During the investigation, the suspect, Maderkis Deyawn Rollinson was identified by investigators as the source of the cocaine.
