    I'm sure you could find the same thing in one out of every three homes in the Rocky Mount city limits.

    Gun+drugs=federal charges due to the amount he had in the home. Most likely from a search warrant in which an earlier undercover purchase was made from the home. Maintain dwelling, sell and deliver, etc. and a gun present=5 years minimum sentence under federal guidelines.

    So, it is a big deal to him

    yes I agree they all need to be caught please don't get me wrong on that count.

    Oh for real...this is not even worth the time the officers used in suiting up. Go get the real dealers, his sounds like it was personal, I know it's all illegal, but wouldn't we rather use our resources to make BIG bust, that actually amount to something.

    So, what is the complete story? Since when did owning a gun become illegal? This sounds pretty petty to me...

    $200 or $2 million worth.
    get him off the streets.

    Did I miss the part about why they were searching his home to begin with?

    They could go to 1/2 the houses in that neighborhood and find that and/or more.

    In the time it took them to search his house, 200 drunk drivers took to the road.
