A Weldon man was charged Wednesday on crack and marijuana counts following the execution of a search warrant on Ransome Circle.

Captain A.M. Harris of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said approximately 17 grams of crack and 193 grams of marijuana was seized following the raid in the 200 block. Paraphernalia and currency were also seized.


Edward Davis, 40, faces charges of felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of cocaine, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The search warrant, based on an investigation by Agent B.J. Murphy after receiving information on possible drug activity, was executed by members of the sheriff’s office’s narcotics and patrol divisions with assistance from the Weldon Police Department.

Davis received a $10,000 bond with a March 17 court date.
