HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) — The location of a stolen gun led to the seizure of several drugs and thousands of dollars.

When officers arrived, they said they saw someone throw a pistol out of the apartment window. He surrendered without incident and officers recovered the pistol.

Police also arrested a 28-year-old man for failure to appear.

They then obtained a warrant and searched the apartment, locating almost 25 grams of methamphetamine, 3.5 grams of marijuana, associated drug paraphernalia and almost 20 grams of an “unknown powder.” Over $10,000 was also seized.

As a result of this search, the 28-year-old was charged with possession with intent to distribute within 1000 feet of a school, possession with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana paraphernalia in addition to his failure to appear.

The adult received a $50,200 secured bond. The juvenile was taken to juvenile detention.
