BAKER, LA (WAFB) -

A Baker man was taken into custody on drug and weapons charges after a search of his home early Friday morning.

The Baker Police Department said Calvin Stewman even admitted the drugs and guns found in the home belonged to him.

Police said they searched the home on Greenwood Lane just before 5 a.m. after getting the proper warrant and quickly detained four people. Chief Mike Knaps said when he walked in he could smell raw marijuana.

Knaps said Stewman told detectives there was marijuana and guns in the home and explained where in the home they could be found.

Investigators said they confiscated 16 baggies of marijuana, a silver revolver, a semi-automatic handgun, two shotguns and four rifles.

Police reported Stewman said he was selling marijuana and his prescription Hydrocodone pills to supplement his income. The report added he had only been selling drugs for a few months.

He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office on charges of possession of marijuana and illegal carrying of weapons with a controlled dangerous substance.
