A two time convicted felon was arrested in Rand, WV Wednesday, April 3.

According to a news release issued by the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office, 26-year old Chris Carey of Rand was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The news release says the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office STOP Team executed a search warrant on Carey's residence, after investigating him for several weeks in which they received a tip that Carey was selling drugs from his residence.

When the STOP team searched Carey's residence, they found he had a handgun, as well as an unknown quantity of marijuana, and several thousand dollars, all of which were seized.
