♦ Arresting 3 persons on drug charges in Salisbury, during the city’s seismic heroin, meth, crack, and opioid epidemic, is akin to picking 3 beans out of an overflowing bushel basket.  Unless a dope dealer is hopelessly broke, he or she will be right back on the street again after posting bond.  Like initiatives for reducing gang life, drug peddling can’t be solved by “arresting it away”.  Like gangs and poverty, dope dealing is a challenge requiring multiple solutions often working in unison and a willingness for the individuals to alter their life courses.

Salisbury Police sources reported last Wednesday, April 5th that Kenneth Derrell “Dutch” Lark, 35, on the Salisbury Police’s MOST WANTED LIST and living at 204 Ferndale Drive in Salisbury, was arrested after his black Toyota Tundra was stopped by the Salisbury Police on Institute Street near West Bank Street and was searched.  Lark made an initial move to leave his vehicle and attempt to flee officers, but was quickly arrested, handcuffed, and placed in custody.

Kenneth Derrell “Dutch” Lark:

Lark was charged with no operators license (misdemeanor), resist/delay/obstruct a public officer (misdemeanor), and possess with intent to manufacture/sell/distribute controlled substance II (felony).

Under a secured $5,000 bond, Lark has since bonded out of the Rowan County Detention Center.
