LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Two Laurel residents are in jail on various drug and weapons charges, after a police raid on their home. Officers say 30-year-old Daisy Hunter and 22-year-old Marcus Antonio Lang were arrested October 23rd at a home on 11th Street.

Hunter faces charges including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm by a felon.  Lang faces charges of receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm by a felon. 

Officers say they confiscated more than 230 grams of marijuana, about 8 grams of crack cocaine, some prescription narcotics, and an automatic handgun. Based on information they got from the raid, officers then arrested 2 men in connection with a home burglary that took place 10 days ago on West 8th Street.

31-year-old Clarence Lee Arrington and 21-year-old Stewart Alonzo Moffett were arrested Saturday and charged with burglary. Officers say the men allegedly stole items that were found in the home where Hunter and Lang were arrested.
