$45,000 In Cocaine Seized From Clayton Home

A large quantity of cocaine, several firearms, drug paraphernalia and an undisclosed amount of cash was seized by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office this week following a search warrant inside the Clayton city limits.

Following a lengthy undercover investigation, narcotics agents executed a search warrant late-Monday at the home of Ernest Williams on Gristmill Circle off Amelia Church Road. During the search, agents reportedly seized one pound of cocaine with a street value of $45,000.

Williams was held on a $250,000 bond at the Johnston County Jail on charges that include trafficking cocaine and possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver a controlled substance.
