According to WNCN, Gary Lewis Cantor, 26, was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and distribute Xanax. He was also charged with possessing 28 vials of anabolic steroids, 280 grams of marijuana and more than 2,000 Xanax pills.
Xanax is a brand name drug used to treat anxiety and panic disorders.
The Daily Tarheel reported that investigators obtained a search warrant after someone filed complaints about the smell of marijuana coming from Cantor’s home.
Inside his home, authorities reportedly found a pill press imported from China and the ingredients for Xanax.
Cantor was released on a $5,500 bond Friday and is expected to appear in court on Feb. 18 at the Durham County Courthouse.
