On Wednesday, MPD personnel executed a search warrant at 150 Raintree Lane after receiving complaints about possible drug activity at the home, according to the news release.

During the execution of the search warrant, Narcotics detectives seized approximately 2,475 grams of marijuana, infused gummies (containing THC), marijuana vape cartridges, approximately 200 grams of Promethazine Syrup, a handgun, and more than $16,000, police said.

Gillespie was charged with Felony Possession with Intent to Sell & Deliver Marijuana, Felony Maintaining a Dwelling for Controlled Substances, Possession of Schedule V Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Child Abuse. He was transported to the Iredell County Detention Center, where a magistrate issued a $5,000 secured bond.

  1. So, with low of a bond of $5,000 the guy will likely pay $500 to a bondsman and be back out on the streets within hours to sell more drugs. I think it time to re-evaluate the table that is used to set bonds. It’s a Joke!
