Detectives seized about eight pounds of marijuana, $1,920 in cash and assorted drug paraphernalia during a raid of a Winterville home that led to an arrest Thursday.

Mutassum Mohammad Mustafa Awadallah, 23, faces a number of marijuana-related charges.

The arrest was part of an investigation into the sale of marijuana in the Winterville area by the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit, K-9 Unit and Street Crimes Unit, along with Pitt County probation officers.

Awadallah was booked into the Pitt County Detention Center Friday on a $50,000 bond and was released the same day.

His next court appearance is scheduled for January 22.
