ALBANY — Two men were arrested Thursday and charged with drug and firearm offenses after drug agents conducted a raid on their mobile home, officials say.
Major Bill Berry with the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit said Friday that a mobile home located in the Main Street Estates mobile home park near the intersection of Clark Avenue and Mock Road had been raided several weeks earlier, with little success. On Thursday, though, agents said several illegal substances were found.
“When we hit the first trailer we arrested four people and confiscated a little bit of dope,” Berry said, “It was later on we realized that the trailer behind it was where the real action was.”
When the search warrant was served around 2:30 p.m., ADDU agents found nearly two ounces of crack cocaine in cookie form, Berry said, as well as various unidentified pills, some $2,200 in cash and a handgun.
According to Berry, James G. Green, 43, and Marvin Evans, 61, each were charged with trafficking in cocaine. Evans received additional charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, Berry said.
Berry said the ADDU is working to identify the various pills confiscated during the drug raid.
“Sometimes if we have difficulty in the identification, we just take the pills down to the local Walgreen’s and the pharmacist can cross reference them for us,” Berry said.
