Narcotics investigators arrested two Lincolnton residents Monday on drug charges following a SWAT team raid last week on the individuals’ home, in which deputies seized a handgun and nearly five pounds of marijuana, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Masked and armed, the SWAT unit served a search warrant Oct. 23 at 117 Massapoag Road in Lincolnton, locating 4.5 pounds of marijuana and a pistol inside the residence, according to a press release.
Narcotics officers requested SWAT’s aid in the incident since one of the occupants had a violent criminal history, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies returned to the property Monday to charge Marvin Christopher Neal, 27, and Angelia Danielle Queen, 28, with one felony count each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana, attempt and conspiracy and maintaining a dwelling/vehicle for a controlled substance.
Neal and Queen have each since posted a $10,000 secured bond.
Queen has a history of drug charges in the county and was convicted of a misdemeanor charge last year, according to the North Carolina Department of Correction website.
No officers or suspects were injured during the raid or arrest.
