A Hollister man was charged Friday on marijuana counts following the execution of a search warrant in the Highway 561 area.

Captain A.M. Harris of the narcotics division of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement the arrest of Charles Junior Lynch, 39, began when Deputy Hunter Wheeler went to the residence to check on a civil paper around 10 a.m.

During the attempted service of the paper Wheeler contacted Harris, who applied for a search warrant.

It was not immediately clear what prompted Wheeler to contact Harris.

During the search approximately 15 grams of marijuana, a marijuana smoking pipe, a Mason jar and a handgun was seized.

Wheeler arrested and charged Lynch with possession of marijuana up to one-half ounce, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and maintaining a vehicle/dwelling for a controlled substance.

Lynch received a September 12 court date.

Deputy Ethan Johnson and narcotics Agent D.R. Radford assisted.
