A 42-year-old man remained in jail Wednesday on a half-million dollar bond after prosecutors charged him with a string of felonies in connection to a search at his home earlier this week.

Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force members were watching Donald Cox's home at 2121 N. 30th St. on Monday based on information they'd gotten that he was a source for marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine and possibly firearms.

Police said in an affidavit for Cox's arrest that he stopped at home for a short time before leaving again at about 4:20 p.m. They say he made an improper turn at 27th and Vine streets, where an officer stopped him.

They say he admitted he had a meth pipe in his pocket. But they also found three bags of meth and $5,455 on him and a loaded .357 revolver, two more meth pipes and a scale in his GMC Envoy.

In the affidavit, police say a search that night at Cox's house turned up two revolvers, a 12 gauge shotgun, a stolen 9 mm handgun and ammunition.

Drug task force members also found 221 grams of meth, 126 grams of cocaine, 791 grams of marijuana, 197 grams of THC-infused gummy edibles and five types of prescription pills, according to court records.

The Lancaster County Attorney's office charged Cox with possession of methamphetamine and cocaine, money and a stolen firearm while violating drug laws, and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
