Once there, officers found a container with 37 bags of what Thomas described as “high-grade marijuana” as well as multiple loaded weapons.

“There were three pistols, including two 9 mm pistols and one 45 (mm),” Thomas said. “Al three were loaded and two were cocked with the hammer back.”

Moreover, Thomas said officers also found a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun. “And there was a 2-year-old child in the residence.”

In addition to the drugs and guns, deputies recovered two sets of digital scales and $1,020 in cash.

Three men were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana first degree and possession of drug paraphernalia: Alexander Rodgers, 28, of 265 Ramage St.; Joey Davis Snell, 28, of 3041 County Road 4408; and Terrell Johns, 28, of 316 Johns St.

Johns also was charged with resisting arrest.

All three men have been released on bond.

“The investigation is continuing,” Thomas said.
