A Sullivan Road man has been bound to the grand jury on narcotics and weapons charges.The suspect, Timothy Wayne Rogers, 30, waived his right to a preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and was bound to the grand jury on charges of possession of drugs for resale, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of drug paraphernalia.His charges come after lawmen arrived at his home wanting to search his house after obtaining information concerning illegal drug manufacture on the premises.The investigators hit paydirt before even beginning their search of the home as a syringe, spoon and a bag of methamphetamine were found on his person.A subsequent search of his residence netted digital scales, numerous baggies, syringes and 2.5 grams of meth. They also found a 25-caliber pistol in the home prompting additional charges since Rogers is a convicted felon and is banned from having possession or ownership of a firearm. He was convicted here in 2010 for manufacturing meth.
