A 35-year-old Crofton man is charged with drug possession and distribution and handgun offenses.

Michael A. Shepherd was arrested Thursday evening at his home in the 1600 block of Airy Hill Court.

After a series of surveillance operations that stemmed from community complaints about illegal drug activities, detectives obtained a search warrant and arrived at the home about 9:30 p.m.

Officers recovered two handguns, one of which was stolen, and several rounds of ammunition. They also found about 370 grams of marijuana with a street value of approximately $3,700, and nearly eight grams of crack cocaine, valued at about $700.

Shepherd was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
