JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A man faces enhanced penalties after police say they found him operating a drug house within feet of a house of worship.

Brandon Charles Herod, 21, of Memphis appeared before Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler who found probable cause Wednesday to charge him with the following:

  • Two counts of delivery of cocaine less than 2 grams
  • Two counts of using a communication device
  • Maintaining premises
  • Distribution near certain facilities-enhanced penalties.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a confidential informant made several controlled purchases of cocaine from Herod.

One of the purchases occurred at Herod’s residence in the 3100-block of Kingsbury Street which, according to court documents, is located directly beside and 95 feet away from Community Fellowship Church on Red Wolf Boulevard.

Judge Fowler set Herod’s bond at $7,500 and ordered him to appear in circuit court on June 29.
