HOLLY SPRINGS — Police went to Bradley Scott Nations’ home on Peakhill Road a little before sunrise Thursday, expecting they would find him home so they could arrest him on three misdemeanor charges, but they wound up filing several felony drug charges involving marijuana, too.
In a search warrant returned to the Wake County Court Clerk’s office, Officer B.K. Tew said Nations, 25, had asked for a chance to get dressed, and an officer accompanied him through the house.
There was marijuana and drug paraphernalia in view, Tew told a magistrate, so police got the search warrant after taking Nations to the Wake County Detention Center on the misdemeanor charges.
During the search police said, they found six marijuana plants.
Thursday afternoon, police charged Nations with possession of marijuana with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver it, manufacturing marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, maintaining the house at 220 Peakhill Road as a place to keep or sell drugs and conspiring with Megan Nicole Caro to sell or deliver marijuana.
Caro, 21, who lives in the same house, was arrested on the same charges as Nations.
The charges that brought police to the one-story house where the two live were interfering with an electric meter, injury to property and larceny.
Nations was being held Friday in lieu of $52,000 bail for a court appearance.
Caro was being held in lieu of $20,000 pending her appearance Friday.
Nations is scheduled to be in court Oct. 9 on the misdemeanor counts and Oct. 29 on other charges of driving without a license and operating a car with an expired inspection and expired registration.
