Police conducted surveillance and observed activity consistent with drug transactions. An undercover officer went to the residence and purchased cocaine. Police then obtained a search warrant for the residence. In executing the search, Defendant and two other co-defendants were inside the residence. Police found 58 plastic bags of white powder (76.2 grams), one plastic bag of white powder (46.1 grams), one plastic bag of white power (17 grams), and over $1,000 in cash.
