The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 35-year-old Corey Weidman had close to four pounds of meth and over $35,000 in drug money at his East Main Street home when he was arrested in December.

Weidman has pleaded guilty to possession with intent to sell methamphetamine and possession of a firearm to further drug trafficking. Sentencing is set for November and he faces a minimum of 15 years in prison.

A no-knock search warrant on December 17 turned up 1.8 kilograms of crystal meth, 3 ounces of cocaine, 4.5 pounds of marijuana, ecstasy and suboxone strips.  Authorities also seized a loaded 9mm handgun, drug weighing and packaging material and a car.

22-year old Cheyanne Moore was also arrested in the raid.

Weidman had been on supervised release for a previous drug conviction when his home was raided last year.

He had to be treated at a local hospital for cuts suffered from broken glass when he tried to jump through a window to get away from police.
