Complaints by Nash County residents about a perceived drug operation led to the recent arrest of a Nashville man on multiple drug charges.
Members of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division conducted a follow-up investigation on Oct. 26 at a residence on Red Oak Road in Nashville. The division had received several community complaints indicating the possibility that a person at the residence was selling and distributing marijuana.
While speaking with Christopher Thomas Walker, 30, at the front door of the residence, deputies were able to detect the odor of marijuana emanating from inside the residence, according to a news release from the Nash County Sheriff’s Office.
Walker was detained as deputies sought a search warrant for the residence. After the search warrant was executed, deputies were able to locate six pounds of marijuana, THC wax, cash and numerous firearms. This contraband was seized and submitted into evidence, Nash County Chief Deputy Brandon Medina said in the news release.
Walker was taken into custody without incident and charged with maintaining a vehicle/dwelling place for a controlled substance, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute a Schedule 1 controlled substance, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute a Schedule IV controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
Walker was jailed under a $10,000 secured bond in the Nash County Detention Center and was able to post bond shortly thereafter, Medina said.
