Three men and a woman were arrested Monday by North Charleston police who said they confiscated marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, a gun, ammunition and a counterfeit $50 bill at a home.
Police went to 8424 East Saddlebrook Drive about 8:30 a.m. to look for a wanted man, 22-year-old Johnathan Monzell Linen, according to a report. Officers who arrived at the front door were met by a woman and noted “a strong smell of marijuana and a cloud of marijuana smoke inside the residence,” the report said.
After finding three men inside, police detained them and searched the home. An officer who noticed the toilet tank top slightly ajar found a plastic bag floating in the water. It contained smaller bags of marijuana, cocaine and crack, the report said.
In a nearby bedroom, a .357-caliber Magnum handgun was found, as were photos of one of the residents, Carlos Elmore Glenn, 20, and copies of previous warrants issued for him, the report said.
Along with burned marijuana, police said they found a digital scale, a plastic bag with cocaine residue, ammunition, pistol holders and a counterfeit $50 bill.
The report said the marijuana weighed 58.2 grams (about 2 ounces), the cocaine, 2.6 grams; and the crack, 10.1 grams.
Arrested were Linen, Ira Darmy Brown, 40, and Alma Jean Brown, 43, all of East Saddlebrook Drive; and Glenn, of West Surrey Drive, police said. All are charged with trafficking cocaine base, trafficking cocaine base in proximity of a school, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute in proximity of a school, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in proximity of a school.
Glenn and Linen also are charged with possession of a firearm during commission of a violent crime. Police said Linen is on probation for a previous felony.
