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.

    Well Reggie, somehow I believe you had something to do with your cousin getting popped and now you got it back. Thats reaping what you sow. Carma dude, carma. Now go get a job if they let you go with probation.

    I love the “It was here when I moved in, and I haven’t had a chance to throw it out yet” defense. He could have used that for the crack cocaine as well.

    “lets have the police kick in your door, and see if they wouldn’t find something to take you to jail for.”

    Please note “after a search warrant revealed ”

    They didn’t just kick in doors. A judge agreed there was probable cause to search.

    David for good judges

    “Why is he out on bond???? Only $40,500?”

    Because it’s hard to run a business from inside the jail.

    Well, that and the fact that he hasn’t been convicted. “The mill of justice grinds slowly but….”. Nope, that’s all, just slowly.

    David for a fine grind

    @ Mark, they would find nothing illegal in my house. How about yours? Sounds like you might have lost your connection.

    Can’t say selling crack is ok, but lets have the police kick in your door, and see if they wouldn’t find something to take you to jail for.

    Damn Reggie, you’ve been using that “I don’t sale dope very much” for years now. You are going to keep fooling around until they send you down the road for the rest of your life. Those guns will get you to the Federal Court house if ATF wants to pick the case up. You may have just ran out of luck. You can’t say you weren’t told.
