Patrols near Green Acres and Tabor City discovered four firearms and multiple illegal drugs in two separate incidents Friday.

The report states that officers patrolling the Green Acres neighborhood noticed a Chrysler vehicle failing to stop at a stop sign and turned on their lights. Marcus Shawn Lowery, 45, of Fairmont was driving the vehicle and told deputies he did not have a driver’s license but had a state ID.

When Lowery was asked if deputies could search the car, Lowery replied there was nothing illegal inside and the report indicated there was a gun between the seats. During the search, a Taurus .22 handgun and a destroyed prescription bottle containing 6.35 grams of oxycodone were located. The report says Lowery told deputies the drugs belonged to him.

A records check revealed that Lowery is a convicted felon and ineligible to possess a firearm. He was charged with two counts of trafficking in opiates and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and held on $100,000 bond.

In an unrelated arrest a short time later, three other men, also from Fairmont, were arrested near the town of Tabor.

Timothy Lee Grissett, 40, was charged with altering or deleting the serial number of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon. His bail was set at $15,000.

Trysten Pickett, 18, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a stolen firearm. He was held under a $5,000 secured bond.

Caleb Stephens, 22, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $7,500.

The report says officers seized a .22 caliber revolver, an A Ruger LCP pistol and an SCCY handgun, as well as 18.6 grams of marijuana, 1.09 grams of crack cocaine, scales and drug packaging bags for sale.
