NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A three month investigation by North Precinct detectives came to an end Thursday with the arrest of Charles Meriweather, a convicted drug felon who has several prior cocaine convictions.

Authorities executed a search warrant Thursday at Meriweather's home on Brickdale Lane. Police recovered 63 grams of cocaine, 32 grams of marijuana, a "kilo press," a pistol, and over $400 in cash.

Meriweather is facing several charges of selling cocaine, gun possession during the commission of a drug offense, and felony marijuana possession. His bond is set at $156,000. 

Meriweather received a 12-year probated sentence from a 2005 arrest.
