Damion Lashon Massey, 22, of McArthur Drive in Rockingham was arrested on Friday, October 13, subsequent to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics Unit making several controlled purchases of heroin from him. Massey was arrested and placed in the Richmond County Jail under a $100,000 secure bond.
