Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, assisted by officers with the Orange Police Department, seized 19 pounds of marijuana, two handguns, a digital scale, and nearly $7,000 in cash while executing a search warrant at a residence in the 3100 block of Oakmont Drive in Orange on Oct. 29.

According to a news release from OCSO, deputies executed the warrant at approximately 2:30 p.m. and discovered the drugs, firearms, cash and paraphernalia. The resident, identified as 44-year-old Marcus Lynn Robinson, was placed under arrest for Felony Possession of Marijuana and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by Felon. Robinson was previously incarcerated in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for Possession of a Controlled Substance and is currently on parole until 2055, OCSO reports. 

Robinson was booked into the Orange County Jail for the two new charges, both of which are 3rd degree felonies. He was arraigned the morning of October 30 by Justice of the Peace Judge David Peck and his total bond was set at $200,000.  Robinson was able to post bond several hours later, but was arrested and taken into custody again at about 11:20 a.m. for a parole warrant. No bond was set at the time of the news release.
