The Greenville Police Department has arrested a man who lives near Sadie Saulter school on drug and weapons charges after a two-week investigation.

The department reported on Monday that Kareem Ashad Gibbs, 26, of 1107 Douglas Ave., was charged on Saturday after an investigation by the department’s gun violence unit and neighborhood officers.

Officers recovered crack cocaine and a stolen handgun during a search at Gibbs’ residence. Gibbs’ address is less than 1,000 feet from Sadie Saulter, the department reported.

Gibbs is facing multiple felony charges including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm, possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, maintaining a house to sell the controlled substance, and selling controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

He also was charged with misdemeanor resisting a public officer in connection to an earlier case. In that case, police said Gibbs ran away from an officer who responded to Gibbs’ residence for an assault.

Gibbs has prior felony weapons charges.
