DOBSON, N.C. — Two people were arrested on numerous drug charges in Surry County on Thursday.

Earlier in the week, the Surry County Sheriff’s Office received information regarding possible drug activity at a residence on Greene Road.

Based on the information given, a preliminary investigation was started. Investigators learned that one of the suspects, Mark Dana Wilson Jr., 25, of Dobson, was wanted by the State of Florida on drug-related charges.

Officers went to the residence on Thursday. Upon arrival, officers spoke to Wilson’s girlfriend, 35-year-old Polly Ann Moore, of Dobson, who told them Wilson was not there.

Wilson was hiding in the residence and attempted to flee by kicking an air conditioner out of a window and running from the residence.

Officers gave chase, apprehending Wilson a distance from the residence.

Following Wilson’s arrest, officers conducted a search of the residence and found small quantities of crushed pills, marijuana, syringes and various smoking devices.

Moore was also arrested.

Wilson is charged with maintaining a drug dwelling, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a public officer and being a fugitive from another state.

Moore is charged with maintaining a drug dwelling, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a public officer and misdemeanor child abuse.

The child abuse charge for Moore stems from syringes being left within reach of young children in the home as well as for the living conditions.

Wilson was placed under a $100,000 secured bond. Moore was placed under a $50,000 secured bond.

Both are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
