Residence on Hunters Point Pike --
The Wilson County Sheriff's Department seized a large cache of drugs, guns, $5,000 and several vehicles and other items believed to have been involved in illegal drug sales in a mid-day raid Tuesday, Jan. 13.
Sheriff Robert Bryan indicated his department had received numerous reports from citizens detailing suspicious activity surrounding a residence at 3877 Hunters Point Pike.
As a result of an ongoing investigation by Detective Allen McPeak, members of the members of the Wilson County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team (SRT) obtained a warrant and conducted a search of the home and premises Tuesday.
The SRT found five people inside the residence, including a couple with past drug convictions.
During a search, the officers discovered two pounds of marijuana, pharmaceutical pills, marijuana packaging material and scales used for the distribution of the marijuana.
They additionally recovered two loaded hand guns and two rifles. Detectives seized in excess of $5,000 in cash, three vehicles, and four motorcycles all of which are associated with the ongoing illegal activity being conducted from the residence.
No arrests were made Tuesday but charges of possession of Schedule VI (marijuana) with intent for resale, possession of Schedule II with intent for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony will be presented to the Wilson County Grand Jury at a later date on the couple.
"We appreciate the initiative several brave witnesses took to report the illegal activity," Sheriff Bryan said. "It is because of the help of people in our community, these officers were able to obtain the information they needed to take these illegal items off the streets."
