A Durant man arrested Saturday after officers served a search warrant at his home has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 2,000 feet of a school.
Disahmal Shea Sims, 35, was charged Monday.
He was arrested after Durant Police and the Bryan County District Attorney’s Drug Task Force searched his 903 N. 19th Ave. home. According to an affidavit, officers arrived at the home at 4:44 p.m. and knocked on the door, announcing “Police, search warrant.”
Officers then entered the home and a man identified as Sims was in the living room. He was handcuffed, taken outside and given a copy of the search warrant.
The affidavit states that on a bed, police found a baggie containing 36.1 grams of a green, leafy substance and also a backpack that contained one gallon-sized bag with 59.6 grams of a green, leafy substance, plus seeds. Another gallon-sized bag held 458 grams of the same substance. All of these substances later tested positive for marijuana.
Officers also found a set of scales, according to the affidavit, and Sims was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sims declined to talk, according to police, and he was booked into jail. Police used “Google Earth” to measure the distance from the front door of the residence to Northwest Heights Elementary School, and according to the affidavit, it measured 560 feet.
