Drug raids that Raleigh police conducted Tuesday yielded charges that two women had just under 10 pounds of marijuana and tried to flush 3 pounds of it away and that two men had a smaller amount of marijuana but more than $50,000 in cash.
About 8 p.m., police went to a townhouse at 12004 Fox Valley St. where Danielle Yasmeen Snow, 27, and Tabara Banjul Blain, 58, live.
Inside, they said in arrest warrants, they found 9.97 pounds of marijuana and $9,969 in cash.
Snow and Blain were each charged with possession of the drug with intent to sell and distribute it because the quantity was 0.03 pounds under the quantity that raises possession to the level of trafficking.

Police charged Blain with resisting an officer because, they wrote charged, she was trying to disposed of evidence in the toilet. Snow was accused of maintaining the townhouse for drug selling.
Tuesday afternoon, police went to an apartment at 1230 University Court and arrested Homer Allen Faison, 36, of 301 E. Butler Ave. in Clinton, saying they found 142 grams (about 5 ounces) of marijuana and “more than $50,000” in cash.
