HIGH POINT, N.C. — A High Point man jailed on multiple drug charges is being held under $1 million bond.

Qwinton Lavarus Carroll, 30, of 210 Taylor Ave., was arrested on Wednesday and charged with two counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine, three counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver heroin, three counts of selling/delivering a controlled substance within 1,000-feet of a school or day care and one count of trafficking heroin.

Capt. Mike Kirk said High Point has been plagued with heroin overdoses. However, Capt. Kirk said there is no way to know if Carroll sold drugs to the folks who overdosed.

There have been 66 heroin overdoses in High Point in 2014.

Carroll’s home is less than 1,000 feet from Fairview Elementary, likely triggering the three counts of selling within 1,000-feet of a school or day care.
