SPRING HOPE — Police said a man was caught with cocaine and guns in an apartment where young children were staying.

Officers approached 113 Northside St. about 9 p.m. on Thursday after noticing a large group of people gathering outside, the Spring Hope Police Department said in a news release posted to its Facebook page. Police said people inside and outside of the apartment exhibited suspicious behavior, which led them to question the residents.

Police searched the home after obtaining consent from the tenant, 32-year-old Keontae Hunter, and found several small bags of powder cocaine along with two firearms, according to the police department.

An image of seized property police released Friday indicates four baggies of cocaine, two magazines and 30 rounds of ammunition, including seven hollow-point bullets, were confiscated along with a Ruger pistol, a carbine rifle and a dagger with a sheath.

Hunter was arrested on charges of possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, felony possession of cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of selling narcotics, three counts of child endangerment and failing to store firearms to protect a minor.

The child endangerment and firearms storage charge stem from "the presence of young children at the residence," police said in the release.

Hunter was booked in the Nash County Jail in Nashville under a $15,000 secured bond. He had no pending charges or criminal convictions in North Carolina at the time of his arrest.

Spring Hope police credited the Nash County Sheriff's Office with providing assistance during the search.
