Five people were in the Calhoun County Jail on drug possession charges Friday after police discovered crack cocaine, morphine pills and pre-packaged marijuana inside a Piedmont home.

Damarious Jerell Boyd, 23; Marcus Deontay Pinson, 30; Devon Brittney Weber, 25; Eriche Keanna Gamble, 20; and Russell Levi Robinson Jr., 22, each face two felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and one felony charge of possession of marijuana.

Boyd faces an additional felony charge of obstructing justice using a false identity, according to jail records.

The Piedmont Police Department’s narcotics unit made the arrests after executing a search warrant at the home on the 400 block of North Fifth Avenue.

Police Chief Steven Tidwell said a 9 mm handgun was recovered from the home along with 2.1 pounds of marijuana. The chief said he did not know the exact weight of the cocaine or the number of morphine pills.

Pinson, Gamble and Robinson have bonds set at $30,000; Boyd at $40,000 and Weber at $7,500, according to a jail worker. Their court date is set for Feb. 24.
