Columbus Man is Charged with Possession and Intent

Sanders

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — A Columbus man is busted for the second time in seven months after narcotics agents find marijuana and more than 23 hundred dollars in his home.

Cory Sanders, 24, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute following Monday’s search of his home. In addition to the cash, more than a quarter pound of marijuana, scales, and a Ruger 9 millimeter pistol were confiscated.

His 2005 BMW SUV also was seized because agents think it was bought with drug money.

Sanders was arrested in May on similar charges. That case still is pending in Lowndes County Circuit Court.
