Citizen complaints of possible drug sales led agents of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office to the 1000 block of Knight Road in Hollister Thursday night.
Captain A.M. Harris said in a statement the drug investigation was conducted by Agent D.J. Epperson.
Epperson was granted a search warrant for the residence during the several weeks investigation.
Shortly after 8 p.m., narcotics agents executed the search warrant at the residence.
During the search, agents seized several plastic bags of marijuana weighing 359 grams, 22 units of ecstasy, two handguns, two rifles, two shotguns and several items of drug paraphernalia which consisted of a digital scale, box of plastic bags, marijuana grinder, Dutch Masters cigars, a pipe, containers and Mason jars.
Epperson arrested and charged Steven Tywan Reid, 33, of the residence for felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana, possession with intent to sell/deliver MDMA, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
