HIGH POINT, N.C. — Three people were arrested Thursday and are facing multiple charges after High Point police searched a home and found an Ak-47, 115 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to a High Point Police Department news release.

Wade, 25, of High Point, were arrested after police went to an apartment at  300-A Brentwood Street around 9:30 p.m. because Carolina was wanted on charges of assault on a female, failure to appear in court and a probation violation.

As officers walked up to the apartment, multiple people tried to leave but were stopped by officers due to illegal items in plain view, the release says.
