Justin Ryan Owings,19, and William Thomas Newell, 20, were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and hashish and posession with intent to distribute close to a school after turning themselves in to Columbia police this morning.
The charges stemmed from the raid last week of a residence they shared with Ronald Julius Maurer, 20, on the 200 block of South Bull Street, police said.
Police said they found guns, $16,000 in cash, and drugs in the home at the time of Maurer’s arrest Thursday night. Mauer was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Police said they were responding to a tip called in to Crimestoppers.
Owings and Newell were being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center this evening. Rachael Myers Lowe
