A Wyoming County man who was arrested earlier this month after police found drugs, guns and more than $500,000 cash in his home is now facing federal charges.
A criminal complaint charging Delbert Lester, 55, of McGraws, with possession of oxycodone with intent to distribute was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court.
Lester was arrested earlier this month after officers searched two homes in McGraws that Lester has control of. The houses are less than a mile apart. Lester lives in one and sells drugs from the other, according to the complaint.
Investigators used a confidential informant to make eight controlled drug buys from Lester at the second house from January 2011 to May 4, 2013.
Officers searched the houses on May 9 and found more than 100 firearms and ammunition, as well as $550,000 in cash. In the second house officers found 190 30-milligram oxycodone pills and 155 10-milligram oxycodone pills.
He faces eight counts of delivery of a controlled substance on the state level. He remains free on $200,000 bond while the investigation continues.
