2 face drug charges after search

SALISBURY, NC — Two Salisbury men were arrested March 17 following a raid of a Lincolnton Road home by the Salisbury Police Department Vice and Narcotics Unit and the Rowan County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit.
Deshawn Jamal Outlaw was charged with felony selling and delivering marijuana, conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance. He appeared in court Friday and received a $20,000 secured bond.
Darmarcus Antonio Richardson was charged with felony selling and delivering marijuana, conspiracy to sell marijuana and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was given a $3,000 secured bond and will appear in court April 6.
Police said the arrests follow a warranted search of a home at 921 Lincolnton Road.
During the attempt to serve Outlaw with the search warrant, Outlaw was seen leaving the home with Richardson, police said. After the two were stopped, they were taken back to the 921 Lincolnton Road home.
Officers and a dog searched the home and found marijuana in several spots, the report said, including 189 grams of marijuana, 1.9 grams of hydroponic marijuana, four sets of digital scales and $556 cash. Three bags of marijuana totaling 3 grams were also found in Richardson’s socks, the report says.
Ages and addresses of the two suspects were not available this morning.
