2 in Rowan accused of dealing prescription drugs

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says it has charged two people with dealing prescription medication.

The arrests took place Tuesday, with Glenda Gail Deese and Bobby Edward Gouldman being taken into custody. Both live in Kannapolis, according to sheriff’s deputies.

Investigators said Deese sold prescription narcotics several times to undercover law enforcement officers. In one episode, deputies said, Deese sold 20 units of Hydrocodone to agents.

She was charged with four counts of trafficking opium by sale, four counts of trafficking opium by possession, and two counts of trafficking opium by transportation. She was jailed under $250,000 bond and makes her first court appearance Thursday.

According to investigators, Gouldman sold 40 units of diazepam to agents on two different occasions, Feb. 18 and March 13. He was charged with two counts of possession with intent to sell a controlled substance, two counts of selling or delivering a controlled substance, and two counts of maintaining a dwelling to keep and sell controlled substances.

Gouldman was jailed under $10,000 bond and also is scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday.
