After responding to a call about a fight in the area yesterday, Clayton Police Officers developed information which indicated the presence of illegal drugs at 501 Boling Street.  Detectives then executed a search warrant late yesterday afternoon at 501 Boling Street, the residence of Christopher Scott Hilliard (age 24).  The search resulted in the seizure of over 7 ½ pounds of marijuana.

Christopher Scott Hilliard

Mr. Hilliard was arrested by Det. Bill Kilpatrick and charged with:

  • Felony Possession of Marijuana
  • Possession with Intent to Sell & Deliver Marijuana
  • Maintaining a Dwelling to Keep Controlled Substances
  • Possession of Schedule 1 Controlled Substance - MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) known as “Ecstasy”
  • Manufacturing Marijuana
  • Possession of Schedule 2 Controlled Substance - Hydrocodone (misdemeanor)

All charges are felonies unless otherwise noted.  The “Ecstasy” and Hydrocodone were in small quantity.

Mr. Hilliard was confined in the Johnston County Detention Center in lieu of $51,500.00 secured bond.
