SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury man is facing heroin distribution and weapons charges after police raided his home and business.

On April 18, the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at 508 Tony Tank Lane and at Jones Craft International, a clothing store located at 800 Suite L South Salisbury Blvd., according to Wicomico State's Attorney Matt Maciarello.

Maciarello said the raid of Jones Craft, from where 64-year-old Caleb Wesley Jones III was allegedly dealing narcotics, yielded 21.2 grams of heroin, a .45-caliber handgun and digital scales.

A search of Jones' Tony Tank home yielded another 2.7 grams of heroin, two more .45-caliber handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun, 48.2 grams of marijuana and $700 in cash, according to Maciarello.

Jones is charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of marijuana
possession of firearms in connection with drug trafficking and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $75,000.

"Heroin, and really, opiates in general, have been a major concern for Wicomico law enforcement," Maciarello told WBOC. "We're fighting the problem each and every day; we have a substantial problem here."
