— A shotgun stolen in 2009 from a Raleigh police officer has been recovered during a search of a Durham County man's home, authorities said Friday.

Durham County deputies raided the home at 629 Chalcedony Court on Thursday as part of a five-month drug investigation.

In addition to the Remington 870 shotgun, deputies seized 40 grams of crack cocaine, several hydrocodone pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $3,095 in cash, authorities said.

Dion Hill, 31, was charged with possession of a stolen firearm, four counts of maintaining a dwelling or vehicle for keeping or selling a controlled substance, four counts of possession with intent to sell or distribute cocaine, two counts of selling cocaine, two counts of delivering cocaine, possession with intent to sell or distribute hydrocodone, possession with intent to sell or distribute marijuana, selling a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hill was being held Friday in the Durham County Jail under a $1 million bond.

    Only the police and soldiers should have guns.

    Then only the government and criminals would have them...

    The story and headline conflict! Was it a stolen police department firearm or a firearm stolen from a police man and privately owned? WRAL is good at blurring the lines.

    What good would that do? They barely follow the laws that we have on the books now.

    I assume you mean criminals, when "they" don't follow the laws.

    Performed my usual check to see how close this address is to Holloway St. Yep, there it is. This is definitely an area where I stay alert to everything around me.

    Are we sure Eric Holder didn't give him that gun back in 2009 to stop drug trafficking.
