For the second time in three months, an Iron Station man found himself behind bars for alleged drug activity at his residence, according to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigators.

Deputies said they seized three guns and eight ounces of marijuana from Robin Gail Rowe’s home Friday on Low Bridge Road.

The 54-year-old man was originally charged with possessing more than 40 grams of the illegal substance during a raid on his home in early April, a press release said. Investigators also seized a couple hundred dollars in cash in the incident.

Rowe received two drug-related felony charges following the initial search at his residence this past spring, but neighbors soon told investigators that drug activity had yet to halt at the home.

In connection with this month’s raid, Rowe faces one count each of felony possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule VI controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling/vehicle for a controlled substance, a release said.

Deputies noted that they additionally issued a second person at the residence a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Rowe has since posted a $7,000 secured bond from the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center.

Deputies again reminded residents in a department press release of the importance of contacting the two TIP line numbers at (704) 736-8422 or (704) 736-8606 and to not refrain from reporting information to them regarding continued criminal activity. Investigators also praised the public for assisting law enforcement’s efforts in removing drug traffickers from county streets. TIP line callers may remain anonymous.
