Search Warrant Leads To Arrest On Drug, Weapons Charges
November 19, 2012
A Cantonment man was arrested on felony charges after a search warrant revealed drugs and firearms in his bedroom.
Reginald DeNeal McHenry, age 32 of Quintette Road, was charged with three counts of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $40,500 bond.
When the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Narcotic’s Unit executed a search warrant at McHenry’s Cantonment residence, they reported finding a plastic baggie containing powdered cocaine, items with cocaine residue, items with marijuana residue, a Smith & Wesson revolver in a flower-patterned bag, a .22 caliber revolver and a loaded Beretta .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun.
According to an arrest report, McHenry admitted to knowing about the crack cocaine in his room and that “he does not sell crack very often”. He said the firearms were already in the residence when he inherited the house, and he had not had a chance to dispose of them.
McHenry is due back in court in early December.
