“Upon making entry into the residence,” Green said of Tuesday’s search warrant, “Smith was in the living room area and complied with commands. During a search of the residence, officers located approximately 10 grams of crack cocaine in the kitchen cabinet, less than 30 grams of marijuana in the kitchen, three sets of digital scales, a cell phone on the couch and $1,440 in U.S. currency on Smith’s person.”
