ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. – Sheriff’s deputies arrested four people and found roughly a pound of high grade marijuana during a raid on Wednesday.

Deputies received a tip in February that 24-year-old Shawn West was involved in selling marijuana from a home on Corriher Gravel Road. When detectives searched the home they found marijuana packaged in plastic bags and stored in glass jars and roughly $1,800 in cash.

West and three other people at the home, 20-year-old Justin Murphy, 18-year-old Derrick Sewell and 19-year-old Ashley Thompson, were arrested. All four have been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
