A Gadsden man faces multiple drug charges after a lengthy investigation and a search at a Goss Avenue residence, according to Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit Commander Randall Johnson.
Corey Dejuan Gilley, 28, is charged with two counts of drug trafficking, first-degree possession of marijuana, seven counts of distribution of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
DEU agents executed a search warrant at the Goss Avenue residence last Wednesday, Agent Stephen McGlathery said, after a long investigation into drug sales from the home.
Agents found about 790 Xanax pills, 340 grams of synthetic marijuana, 254 grams of marijuana, 30 grams of ecstasy, $18,933 in U.S. currency and three loaded firearms.
Gilley is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on cash bonds totaling $237,500.
The investigation continues, McGlathery said in a press release, and more state and federal charges could be brought related to the drugs and firearms seized.
The Gadsden Police Department, Alabama National Guard Counterdrug Program and FBI Safe Streets Task Force also participated in the case.
