trafficking-meth-in-charlotteA Charlotte area man has just been found guilty this past week for trafficking over 300 grams of meth. The Morganton man has now been sentenced to two active sentences of 7-10 years and fined $200,000 for trafficking more than 300 grams of meth and other charges.

Reginald Curtis, 37, was arrested back in January 2014 after Morganton Police discovered a shoebox filled with roughly 303 grams of methamphetamine in his rental car. He initially ran from police, forcing police to tase him to bring him down.

He was charged with felony maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, felony trafficking in methamphetamine by transportation, felony trafficking in methamphetamine by possession, felony possession with intent to sell and distribute methamphetamine, felony possession of a stolen firearm, and felony possession of a firearm by a felon.

Curtis was found guilty on all counts by a Catawba County jury this past Thursday.
