Police say they seized nearly $2,800 in cash, 39 grams of cocaine, 325 envelopes of a substance believed to be a mix of heroin and fentanyl, an electronic money counter, a Kimber .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun that had been reported stolen, two rifles, and brass knuckles.
Rafus was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child.
He was arraigned and committed to county jail.
