COLUMBIA — Police arrested a Columbia man Tuesday after discovering a small amount of cocaine at his home, according to a Boone County Sheriff's Department news release.

Christopher D. Brown, 26, was arrested on charges of suspicion of parole violation, possession of a controlled substance, being a felon in possession of a firearm and receiving stolen property.

Police served a warrant Tuesday to 4265 W. Bethany Drive after an investigation led them to believe there was a drug distribution occurring, the release stated. Police found cocaine and a stolen, loaded handgun, and the condition of the residence indicated cocaine distribution was happening at the location, according to a news release.

Brown, who is a convicted felon, was on parole at the time of the incident for drug related charges, the release stated.

Brown was being held at the Boone County Jail Tuesday night on a bond of $20,000 for the unlawful use of a weapon and $20,000 for a controlled substance.
