Arrest made after bullets pierced car with a newborn inside; 10g crack found on suspect at jail
A Sunday argument turned violent when a Havelock man fired gunshots at another person, and the bullets pierced a car with a one-month-old baby inside.
The baby was not shot and there were no injuries.
The Craven County Sheriff’s Office said Timothy Reels Jr. was arrested and taken to jail.
During a search of the 33-year-old at the detention facility, investigators say they discovered he had about ten grams of crack cocaine.
Reels was charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle and was jailed under a $200,000 bond, but additional charges are pending after the drugs were found.
