Two arrests have been made related to guns and violent crimes in Henderson, and both men have gone through the court system before.

The Henderson Police Department and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made the arrests of 21-year-old Jammee Duchea Terry and 22-year-old Daquian Demard Nicholson.

Terry, of 2223 Oxford Road in Henderson, is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He was placed in the Vance County Jail without bond, pending transfer to the U.S. Marshal Service.

Nicholson, of 521 Arch Street in Henderson, is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He was placed in the Vance County Jail and will also be transferred to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service.

If either is determined to be a violent armed career criminal, each could receive a sentence of up to life in prison.

Police Lt. Alan Hedgepeth confirmed the investigation into the duo’s activities is ongoing. Additional charges are possible.

Terry received an 11-month incarceration term for a December 2010 Vance County charge of having a firearm as a convicted felon, leaving state prison Nov. 18, 2011.

He served six to eight months for July 21, 2009, charges of felony breaking and entering and felony possession of stolen goods, according to state prison records.

Nicholson left state prison March 12, 2012, after serving a one-year term from an April 2011 Vance County felony breaking and entering charge along with a felony charge of having an illegal drug for sale.

He served nine to 11 months on consolidated Wake County felonies from 2006 through 2008, convicted on three breaking and entering charges on March 25, 2009, and leaving state prison Jan. 12, 2010, according to state records.

On March 17, 2008, Nicholson received a five to six months sentence for a Feb. 23, 2008, incident of felony breaking and entering and a larceny misdemeanor. Two of his breaking and entering convictions were for incidents that took place while serving a suspended sentence in that case, according to state prison records.

A Wake County court imposed the penalty of five to six months after a probation revocation hearing.

Nicholson was convicted in Wake County on four previous breaking and entering felonies and three felony larceny charges from incidents that ran June through October 2006, according to state prison records.
