Wednesday, Oct. 29, at approximately 2:30 p.m., the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by the Orange Police Department, conducted a search warrant at a residence in the 3100 block of Oakmont, in Orange.
Detectives located 19 pounds of marijuana, two handguns, a digital scale, and nearly $7,000 in cash. The resident, identified as 44 year old Marcus Lynn Robinson, was placed under arrest for felony possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Robinson was previously incarcerated in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for possession of a controlled substance, and is currently on parole until 2055.

He was arraigned the morning of Oct. 30, by Justice of the Peace Judge David Peck, and his total bond was set at $200,000. Robinson was able to post bond several hours later and is currently out of jail.
