Habitual Felon sent to prison in New Bern

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

Avenil Lunan, 53, of New Bern, was convicted and sentenced in Craven County Superior Court this week for Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell or Deliver. He was punished as a Habitual Felon.

New Bern Police officers on regular patrol witnessed Lunan conducting a hand-to-hand transaction in which he sold marijuana to another person. Lunan was immediately arrested and the officers seized a bag containing 17 additional bags of marijuana.

Lunan, having been convicted of at least three prior felonies, was sentenced to a minimum of three years in prison. Lunan's prior record is comprised almost entirely of drug offenses, mostly for possessing marijuana with intent to sell it, and stretches back to 1988.
