Deputies who went to a Rockwell home regarding a domestic situation Wednesday charged a man with drug possession at his parents’ home and cited his girlfriend with marijuana possession.

Colby Matthew Combs, 21, of the 100 block of Sir Oliver Place, was charged with simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resist, obstruct, delay an officer. He was issued a $1,000 secured bond and has since been released from the county jail.

Phantasha Krystal Cook, 19, of the 700 block of Beagle Club Road, Salisbury, was cited for simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Combs’ parents, who owned the home, opened the door for law enforcement when officers knocked around 6:30 a.m. and let officers inside. When officers went to Combs’ bedroom they could hear moving around and whispering.

The door was partially off the hinges and so officers removed it. When they went inside, Combs and Cook were inside. Deputies tried to speak with Combs, but he became irate and screamed at his parents. Deputies searched the bedroom and found a marijuana grinder, a glass smoking pipe and a clear plastic container with marijuana inside.

The report said officers found a smoking device in Cook’s purse that contained unsmoked marijuana.

In 2009, Combs was convicted of misdemeanor breaking and entering and property damage.
