Suspect facing drug, weapons charges appears in court

Staff Reports • Dec 15, 2015 at 2:58 PM

A Lebanon man charged with multiple drugs and weapons charges appeared in court Thursday.

Charjoray Weir, 36, of Lebanon, was charged with possession of schedule VI drugs, schedule II drugs, schedule III drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft of property between $500-$1,000 and employment of a firearm with intent to go armed.

These charges stem from a September incident where Lebanon police Chief Scott Bowen said officers executed a search warrant at Weir’s home after an investigation led police to believe he was selling drugs out of his S. Maple Street home.

Police said at the time they 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 also charged with additional drug charges in November.

Weir was also previously released from prison in June 2011 after serving nearly 13 years for the 1998 killing of a Lebanon man. He pleaded guilty in January 1999 to second-degree murder in the August 1998 shooting death of Chad Clark at Inman Court.

On Thursday, Weir appeared in court before Judge David Durham, where he had a court date set for Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m. to go over discovery for the case.
