ROCKINGHAM — A man and woman are accused of selling heroin near a daycare center multiple times over the summer.


According to arrest warrants, 28-year-old Larry Stewart McDonald, of Aleo 9th Avenue, sold heroin from a white BMW to a confidential informant on three occasions — twice within 1,000 feet of the boundary of Rainbow Child Development Center on Biltmore Drive.

Court documents show he sold 0.2 gram on June 19 and Sept. 25 and 0.4 gram on July 9.

Martha Grisel Corrales-Avina, of the same street, is also accused of selling near the daycare center on Sept. 25.

She is carted with one count each of selling a Schedule I controlled substance; delivering a Schedule I controlled substance; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule I controlled substance; and manufacturing, selling, delivering of possessing a controlled substance at a child care center.

Her arrest warrant was issued Oct. 8 and served Oct. 10, records show. She was released the same day on a $15,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 31.

McDonald was arrested by the Wadesboro Police Department Oct. 8 and remains in the Anson County Jail under a combined $100,000 secured bond.

He is charged with: three counts of selling a Schedule I controlled substance; three counts of delivering a Schedule I controlled substance; three counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule I controlled substance; three counts of maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place for a controlled substance; and two counts of manufacturing, selling, delivering of possessing a controlled substance at a child care center.

Online jail and court records show McDonald is also charged in Anson County with: possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver methamphetamine; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule I controlled substance; and obtaining property by false pretenses.

Jail records show he was charged Tuesday with a felony probation violation.

McDonald was convicted Sept. 12 of possession of a firearm by a felon and given a 24-month suspended sentence, according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

He has court appearances scheduled for Oct. 24 in Richmond County and Dec. 3 in Anson County.

Records show Stewart was convicted in 2016 of possession with intent to sell a Schedule VI controlled substance and selling a Schedule VI controlled substance.

Corrales-Avina has no previous convictions in North Carolina.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
