A Newnan man was arrested on a variety of drug and weapons charges after a drug raid.
Investigators with Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Unit raided residence at 30 Wilcoxon Street near the intersection of Berry Avenue and Farmer Street in Newnan after an undercover investigation last week, according to Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office.
The drug unit found a little more than a half pound of marijuana, two ounces of cocaine and a stolen pistol, the colonel said.
Christopher Raymone Reeves was arrested for theft by receiving stolen property, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, cocaine trafficking and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, Yarbrough said.
