Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 36-year-old man on a laundry list of drug and weapons charges after they went to a home Woods Street to check out a report of marijuana usage and found marijuana, K-2, ecstasy, cocaine brass knuckles, and a pistol.
Charles Edward Sanders Jr, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance between 4 and 400 grams, a second-degree felony manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance between 1 and 4 grams charge, a third-degree felony unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge, a state-jail felony manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance less than 28 grams charge, a Class A misdemeanor prohibited weapon charge, Class B possession of a controlled substance less than 20 ounces charge, and a Class B possession of marijuana charge.
Collectively, Sanders' bail was set at $103,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, NPD officers went to a residence in the 600 block of Woods Street early Saturday morning to check out a report that people there were smoking marijuana. When the officers arrived on the scene, they could smell the odor of burned marijuana coming from the house.
The NPD officers made contact with Sanders and told him they knew about the marijuana. At that point, he quickly tried to shut the door and go back in the residence, the affidavit stated.
After the officers detained Sanders, they saw drugs in plain view inside the home. They came back after they obtained a search warrant and found marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, K-2, brass knuckles, and a pistol. Further investigation revealed that Sanders is a convicted felon.
He was arrested and taken to the county jail.
