BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Deputies with the Bladen County Sheriff's Office arrested a man in connection to several drug-related charges and first degree burglary after an incident on Henry J Lane, near Clarkton, around 2 a.m. Saturday.

According to the Bladen County Sheriff's Office, three victims were sleeping in a residence when Charles Kevin James entered through the rear door. James and one of the victims had previously been romantically involved.

Authorities said James went into the bedroom of one of the victims and grabbed her leg. The victim told James repeatedly to leave. A second victim chased James from the residence after hearing the commotion.

After James left, officials say the victims discovered that a pocketbook was missing from one of the bedrooms.

Bladen County deputies stopped James as he was leaving the area in a white Ford F-150 pickup.

Inside the pickup officers found the pocketbook along with marijuana, a grinder with marijuana residue in it, and several different prescription medication pills.

James has been charged with first degree burglary, felonious trafficking in opium, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
