Drugs, guns found during man's arrest

A call about a stolen handgun led deputies to find stash of weapons, explosives, drugs and prescription pills.

On Saturday, January 23, the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Narcotics and Vice Unit received information about a handgun stolen in Monroe possibly being in the possession of a person residing at 10 Princess Drive in Conyers. Investigators made contact with several people at the residence and determined that Grady Allen Wilcox Jr. was the person that lived there. Wilcox gave investigators consent to search the residence.

The stolen handgun (a .44 Magnum revolver) was recovered, but deputies also found the following: a sawed-off shotgun, a homemade explosive device made out of a mouse trap and a shotgun shell, ammunition, multiple pipes used for smoking marijuana and methamphetamine, a digital scale, approximately 4 grams of methamphetamine, approximately 1 ounce of marijuana, and over 100 prescription pills of different varieties.
