A Salisbury man was charged with drug possession after officers went to his home to serve a warrant for another agency and found drugs inside his apartment. Officers who went to the Hall Street apartment seized cash, more than 35 grams of marijuana, digital scales and other items used to sell marijuana.
Salisbury Police charged Terry Darnell Bruce, 33, with felony possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance; misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor failure to appear/comply. Officers also served a warrant from Guilford County for a 2010 pending traffic case for speeding and driving while license revoked.
When officers went inside the apartment, Bruce gave them consent to search which led them to discover 35.6 grams of marijuana divided into two glass jars, $103 in cash, three grinders used to grind marijuana, three digital scales, rolling papers and a pack of Cigarillos.
Officers charged Bruce on Friday and he has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $1,500 secured bond.
In 2001, Bruce had been convicted of misdemeanor larceny and he was convicted of a number of traffic infractions in 2007.
