A raid on a Durham County home led to the arrest of two men and the seizure of cocaine and moonshine, the sheriff's office said Wednesday.
Deputies got a warrant to search 2613 Moores Mill Road on Tuesday, Capt. Donald Baker, a sheriff’s office spokesman, said in a statement.
There, they seized 104 grams of cocaine, 1.5 gallons of moonshine, a prescription drug called suboxone and marijuana and arrested Michael Keith Council, 50, and Saquon Devon Dozier, 23.
Both men live at the address, officials said, and county tax records show that Council owns the one-story home.

Council was charged with trafficking in cocaine, possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, trafficking in opiates, possession with intent to sell or deliver suboxone, possession of alcohol on which tax had not been paid, maintaining the house and a Chevrolet Tahoe as places to keep and sell drugs, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and operating a lottery. He was held in lieu of $750,000 bail.
Dozier was charged with possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was released on $5,000 bail.
Dozier was released from prison last month after serving time for a 2011 conviction for robbery with a dangerous weapon, and he is on parole until August 2016, state records showed.
The reason for the lottery charge was unclear.
