The Salisbury Police charged the following:

Wilson was issued a $13,000 secured bond and since been released from the county jail.
Officers say when they arrived at the home they spoke with a man later identified as Jaivon Scott. He initially spoke with the officer then slammed the door. The officer went to the back of the home thinking Scott would run out the back. The officer called for help from more officers.
A second officer went to the front door and spoke with a woman later identified as Tytia Jones. The officer asked where the man who’d been at the door had gone. She told the officer the man was inside along with another man. But before the officer stepped foot in the door, police say Stan Wilson climbed out of a second-floor window and jumped from the roof. The man landed on the ground and took off running. He was soon caught by police, a report said.
Officers went inside saw small bags of marijuana, marijuana seeds and a marijuana grinder. The officers exited the house so they could obtain a search warrant.
Once police went back inside they found the 5-foot bong, bags of marijuana inside a bag of dog food and inside an outdoor grill. Police also seized rolling papers and a digital scale. Police seized a total of 48.6 grams of marijuana from the home.
