WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Officers with the Wilmington Police Department arrested Garry Orlando Hines after a month-long drug investigation.
According to police, the 20-year-old was charged in connection to 11 counts of selling and delivering heroin.
He is being held in the New Hanover County Jail under a $1 million bond.
Hines was arrested in September 2011 by US Marshals for the murder of 23-year-old Cornelius Blanks, of Burgaw, at Club 609 in May 2011.
According to documents obtained by WECT, a fight broke out at Club 609 when the DJ played a song by a Taaron Jones, a high ranking member of the Blood gang. Documents and interviews show that Jones was a 3 star general in the Double I Blood gang.
Hines was out on bond for that murder charge when he was arrested on drug-related charges. His next court date for first degree murder charges stemming from that incident is slated for December 1.
A judge ruled Tuesday that Hines' brother, Rashaun Herbert James Hines, recently violated his probation twice. He will now serve six to eight months in jail on each of the two counts, back-to-back.
A judge said he violated his probation by missing curfew and for being convicted of resisting a public officer June 20 and "running away from a homicide scene after hiding."
Hines said he was in the area and heard the shots fired, so he hid. He says he wasn't hiding from anyone in the bushes; he was just hiding. He said he ran out of his shoes, and didn't hear offices telling him to stop.
He was sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation and 30 days of suspended jail time for that conviction. He will also be required to pay a $100 fine and court costs.
