LUMBER BRIDGE — Two people have been charged with drug crimes after workers installing an air conditioner found cocaine in a building they were working in, according to Sheriff Hubert Peterkin of the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office.
Jose Manuel Lamas-Delgadillo, 38, and Maria Angelica Jimenez-Nuno, 37, of 8225 St. Pauls Road, are each charged with two counts of trafficking cocaine, maintaining a drug dwelling and drug paraphernalia.
Each is jailed under a $1 million secured bond.
Investigators searched Delgadillo’s home and found 2 kilograms of cocaine, a semi-automatic handgun, scales, packaging material, tally sheets and $1,200, Peterkin said in a statement.
Deputies were called to the home after the work crew reported the drugs, Peterkin said.
The Lumber Bridge address is in Hoke County.
