Search Warrant on Asheboro Home Finds Drugs & Gun, 4 People Charged

ASHEBORO N.C. – Four people have been charged after the Asheboro Police Departments Vice Narcotics unit conducted a search warrant on a home on N Elm St last month.

Sometime in early January, Detectives with the Asheboro Vice/Narcotics unit say there were able to make a controlled purchase of crack cocaine using a confidential informant at a home on N.

On January 14th 2022, Detectives with the Asheboro Vice/Narcotics and Special Enforcement Team, executed that search warrant. Police say they located and seized marijuana, suspected crack cocaine, a handgun, as well as various drug paraphernalia including digital scales, plastic baggies, and smoking devices.
