On Wednesday, deputies searched the home of Nathan Jud Griffin, 41, of Salisbury based on a seven-month long investigation conducted by the sheriff’s office and Salisbury Police Department, authorities stated.

Deputies said they received information about Griffin distributing cocaine from the home and seized 24 grams of cocaine, quantities of marijuana wax, psilocybin mushrooms and two .22 rifles during the search.

He was charged with four counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine, one count of maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, one count of possession of firearm by felon, one count of possession of psilocybin, one count of manufacturing marijuana wax and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
