On Thursday, deputies received information that there was drug activity on James Monroe Place. Deputies went to the scene and arrested Robert Williams. We’re told they found 0.5 kilograms of powder cocaine. It was street valued at $20,000. Williams was charged with resisting arrest and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Deputies said in 2015, they went to that same address with a search warrant where officers recovered several firearms, cocaine, and marijuana. He is still awaiting trial on those charges.
