An Oklahoma City man was arrested after a search of his house turned up 10 pounds of marijuana, scales, a handgun and more than $4,000, police reported Monday.
Skye Manuel Meeks, 28, was arrested about 5:05 p.m. Friday on multiple complaints including possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug proceeds, possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony and possession of marijuana in the presence of a child under 12.
Police were called to the residence at 640 SW 47 in reference to two men smoking marijuana on the porch while children were inside the home, according to the incident report.
When officers arrived, they smelled an odor of marijuana. A man let them inside to check on the children. Inside the home was a 4-year-old, a 1-year-old and a 1-month-old, according to the report.
The officers saw Meeks reach for a brick of marijuana and baggies with a green leafy substance and try to hide them behind his back. Officers asked him to put the items down and handcuffed him, according to the report.
Police found $1,085 in Meeks' pocket and $3,040 more in the house, along with a digital scale, 10 pounds of marijuana, a 9 mm pistol and ammunition, according to the report.
Meeks was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. He was released on bail Sunday, jail officials said.
