3 arrested in drug bust

The Salisbury Police Narcotics Unit served a narcotics search warrant at 425 S. Church St. Wednesday, and found 232 grams of marijuana, a stolen Springfield .40 caliber handgun, a Lorcin .380 handgun, a Keltic .380 handgun and two sets of digital scales.
Arrested was Malcolm Toomer, 18. He was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule VI controlled substance and possession of a stolen firearm, and is in jail under a $10,000 secured bond.
Kevin Toomer, 22, of the same residence, was arrested for an outstanding order for arrest and placed in jail under a $750 secured bond.
A third person, Kyheem Martinez, 17, of 2660 Grubb Ferry Road, Spencer, was arrested for an outstanding warrant for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and was released on a written promise.
Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said the search warrant resulted from an investigation by the drug unit, that had received information from several sources that drug activity was taking place at the residence.
“The Salisbury Police Department takes this type of information and these matters very seriously,” Collins said. “We want to do all we can to help improve the quality of life for those who live within our community.
“Taking a hard, zero-tolerance approach to drug activity is one way that we will do just that.”
