Three charged with selling drugs near Salisbury High

SALISBURY — Salisbury police charged three people Wednesday after officers executed a drug raid at a home across the street from Salisbury High School.
According to a Salisbury Police Department press release, the raid capped a month-long narcotics unit investigation. Investigators found nearly .28 ounces of crack cocaine at 923 South Caldwell Street Apt. 4, along with weighing scales, cash and other drug paraphernalia, the report said.
Police arrested Bryan Taylor, 39, Christina Lipke, 25, and 21-year-old Quadriane Horne at the residence.
All three were charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine and felony possession of drugs within 1,000 feet of school property. They were each given $10,000 bonds.
Lipke and Taylor were also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and felony maintaining a dwelling for storing drugs. They were both listed as living at the 923 South Caldwell address. Horne’s address is listed as 1447 Statesville Blvd.
Police Chief Rory Collins said in the release the arrests were a product of “good and pro-active police work on the part of these investigators.”
Collins also said law enforcement must act as “quickly and aggressively as possible when a situation like this exists around one of our school campuses.”
