On Monday police officers executed a search warrant on Mr. Sambo’s residence and vehicle.

Among the items seized was approximately 20 grams of suspected cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, and numerous items associated with the weighing, concealing, storage, and packaging of narcotics for sale. In addition, $7,000.00
in cash was seized.

Sambo was charged as follows:
