Surveillance equipment and a bullet-resistant vest were found after a search warrant execution this morning around 6.

Captain A.M. Harris declined to elaborate on the discovery of the equipment and vest. He declined to disclose who the target of the investigation is.

The task force and investigative division of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office executed the search warrant after a two-week investigation by Agent C.A. Parker due to drug activity, Harris said in a statement.

During the search of the residence with the assistance of Sergeant J. Bozard and his dog, Fino, marijuana was seized.

This case will remain open pending further investigation, Harris said.

Harris said shortly before 7:30  the task force and the patrol and investigative divisions of the sheriff’s office executed a search warrant.  

Agent D.J. Epperson received several complaints of possible drug sales at this residence.  Through his investigation, Epperson applied for and was granted a search warrant.

During the search of the residence with the assistance of Bozard and Fino, agents seized approximately 47 grams of marijuana and several items of marijuana paraphernalia.

Epperson arrested and charged Larry Williams, 28, and Danisha Simmons, 30, with possession with the intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.  

Harris said Williams and Simmons are boyfriend and girlfriend.

Epperson is also following up with juvenile services after marijuana was found in the room of Simmons’ son, Harris said.

Williams received a $15,000 bond and Simmons a $5,000 bond.

They have August 2 court dates.

This case is still active, Harris said.
