Call about domestic abuse leads to drug charges
Salisbury Police officers seized 24 marijuana plants growing in two closets in a Salisbury home on Friday.
According to the report, officers responded to a domestic dispute at 1008 Fairmont Ave. and smelled a strong odor of marijuana inside the house.
The caller had left when authorities arrived, police said, but the owner of the house was still in the residence.
Police said the owner, 49-year-old Kenneth Monroe Gentry, gave officers consent to search the home, where they found the 24 plants estimated at $100,000.
Gentry was charged with felony manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was given a $1,500 bond and was in jail Friday afternoon.
