ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office on Monday reportedly caught a man with a stolen car and several types of drugs.


According to arrest warrants, 45-year-old John Henry Quick, of Mizpah Road, was in possession of a 1998 Honda Civic, reported stolen from Montgomery County.

Deputies also reportedly found an unspecified amount of meth, cocaine and Suboxone, in addition to 55 full bars and 14 half-bars of Xanax and an unspecified number of clear plastic bags.

The warrant does not specify if the cocaine was in powder or crack form.

Quick was arrested and charged with one felony count each of: possession of a stolen motor vehicle; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver methamphetamine; possession of cocaine; and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance.

He is also charged with one misdemeanor count each of simple possession of a Schedule III controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Quick was booked into the Richmond County Jail on those charges under a $20,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 9.

Jail records show he is also being held under a $50,000 secured bond for two counts of failure to appear on a felony; a $1,000 secured bond for failure to appear on a misdemeanor; and a $500 cash bond for failure to appear pursuant to a show cause hearing for failure to comply with non-support.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Quick was convicted in 1995 on misdemeanor counts of assault by pointing a gun and injury to personal property.

His first drug conviction was in 1999 for maintaining any place for a controlled substance.

Quick was later convicted in 2010 on two counts of selling a Schedule II controlled substance. His probation was revoked in 2014 when he was convicted on another count of the same charge in Cumberland County, landing him in prison for nearly a year.

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