Three Henderson men have been arrested by city police on multiple drug trafficking felonies.

According to Henderson Police Department Lt. Alan Hedgepeth, police made the arrests on Friday.

Warren Lee Small Jr., Jonquill McKinley and Cornelius Vandergrift were all placed under arrest. Small is being held on $215,000 bond, McKinley on $90,000 bond and Vandergrift on $90,000 bond.

Small, 24, of 604 High Street, is charged on three counts of trafficking heroin, two counts of having heroin for sale, two counts of selling heroin and a count of conspiracy.

McKinley, 22, of 118 North Street, is charged on three counts of trafficking heroin.

Vandergrift, 27, of 346 North Clark Street, is charged with conspiracy, two counts of selling heroin and two counts of having heroin for sale.

Hedgepeth indicated Henderson police are working on federal indictments and more arrests for violent crime and heroin trafficking. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is also involved, according to Hedgepeth.

State bureau of prisons records on Small list convictions against him on two larcenies and a break-in charge, stemming from 2004 and 2008 incidents in Vance and Wake counties.

Prison records show Sept. 1, 2009, convictions on two April 22, 2009, robberies in Vance and Wayne counties against McKinley, and five convictions on three previous drug cases, in 2005 and 2010 against Vandergrift, all in Vance County.
