Police charged a convicted killer with multiple drugs and weapons charges after searching a home on South Maple Street Monday.

Lebanon police Chief Scott Bowen said officers executed a search warrant at the home of Charjoray Weir, 35, of Lebanon, after an investigation led police to believe he was selling drugs out of his South Maple Street home.

Police found about a pound of marijuana, two loaded guns, one of which was reported stolen in Davidson County in 2010, scales, pills for which Weir did not have a prescription and an undisclosed amount of money.

Weir was released from prison in June 2011 after serving nearly 13 years for the 1998 killing of a Lebanon man.

Weir pleaded guilty in January 1999 to second-degree murder in in the August 1998 shooting death of Chad Clark in the 200 block of Inman Court.

A judge sentenced Weir to 15 years in prison.

Bowen said Weir is not on parole.

Weir was charged with possession of schedule-six narcotics for resale, simple possession of schedule-two narcotics, simple possession of schedule-three narcotics, unlawful possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of a weapon for a convicted felon, possession of a weapon in the commission of a dangerous felony, drug paraphernalia and theft of property.

Weir was released from Wilson County Jail early Tuesday morning on $14,000 total bond.
