Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit agents seized approximately $9,000 in cash, almost a pound of marijuana, two handguns and a shotgun during a raid at 1628 Gardner St. Apt. A at about 1:30 p.m. Friday, according to ADDU Maj. Bill Berry.
ALBANY, Ga. -- An Albany man was jailed Friday on drug and possession of guns by a felon charges.
Demarcus Price, 26, was arrested by Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit agents after they served a search warrant on his 1628 Gardner Ave., Apt. A, about 1:30 p.m., Maj. Bill Berry, commander of the drug unit, said.
"We had information on him," Berry said, "and after surveillance, we executed a search warrant."
During the search, agents confiscated two pistols and a pistol-grip shotgun, $9,000 in cash and nearly one pound of marijuana. According to thepriceofweed.com, a pound of high-quality marijuana has a value of about $5,600 in Georgia.
Because Price is a felon, Berry said, he was charged with possession of guns by a felon, along with possession of drugs with intent to distribute.
The agents displayed the confiscated goods on a table at their office. Two beaten-up revolvers with duct-taped handles -- a .22-caliber and a .38-caliber gun -- had plenty of ammunition with them. The more formidable-looking black shotgun had more than 10 rounds ready to load.
The continuing investigation uncovered pills, which have yet to be identified, Berry said.
