Rowan County deputies arrested a Kannapolis teen Saturday morning who failed to appear in court this month for heroin trafficking charges.
The arrest came a day after the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office released a public notice asking for information about Brandon Rumple’s whereabouts and offering a $1,000 reward for his arrest.
Rumple, 19, never showed for his trial the first week of March in Cabarrus County Superior Court on a heroin trafficking charge from April 2012, according to a release from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.
Rumple was arrested after deputies seized more than 200 grams of heroin during a search at a Charlotte residence, the release said. He also has additional drug and weapons cases pending in Rowan County.
