BECKLEY - A Beckley man was arrested Friday after authorities found marijuana, cocaine and thousands of dollars inside his home.

Tyrone R. Long, of Beckley, faces two felony charges of possession of drugs with intent to deliver, according to a criminal complaint filed in Raleigh County court.

The Beckley Police Department found multiple cans with cocaine stored in hidden compartments, as well as bags of marijuana in plain sight.

A further search of the house revealed an AK-47 rifle with two magazines and two loaded handguns inside a room used by his children, according to the complaint.

Police said they began a search of his home after learning he had been selling drugs.

It was not immediately known if Long has an attorney.
