Police: Search turns up $7,100 of marijuana

Police arrest Sterling man for two outstanding warrants

STERLING – A Sterling man was being held Tuesday on $325,000 bond after a search of a house Monday night turned up what police said was more than $7,000 worth of marijuana.

According to a news release, Joshua D. Gibbons, 21, was arrested on several charges after Sterling police found marijuana as well as ammunition and drug paraphernalia during the search.

Sterling police on Sunday got a report about a house burglary in the 1500 block of West Fourth Street, which led officers to obtain a search warrant for a house in the 200 block of East 12th Street, the news release said.

Gibbons, of Sterling, had two outstanding warrants for violation of probation and for delivery of a controlled substance. He was arrested and taken to the Whiteside County Jail.

Police say they expect to file three more charges against Gibbons – possession of marijuana 30 to 500 grams with the intent to deliver, possession of ammunition by a felon, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
