A Weaverville man will spend at least 10 years in prison for dealing drugs in Buncombe County, according to District Attorney Todd Williams.

Williams said a jury found Charles William Blagg II guilty of felony possession with intent to sell and distribute methamphetamine, felony possession of methamphetamine, simple possession of marijuana, and for being a habitual felon.  Blagg failed to appear in court and was tried in his absence, Williams said.

The judge sentenced Blagg to between 128 and 166 months in prison.

On May 9, 2017, Blagg was stopped by members of the Buncombe County Anti-Crime Taskforce during an ongoing drug investigation.  In his car, they found a set of digital scales, 6.51 grams of methamphetamine, a quarter-ounce of marijuana, a red metal grinder with marijuana residue, and a syringe loaded with a clear, dark fluid. 

Blagg had prior felony convictions for felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, felony possession of stolen goods, and felony larceny of a motor vehicle. He was sentenced to prison in 2003 and was released in July 2010.
