A man initially arrested on weapons and narcotics charges was released from the Franklin County jail Aug. 23 after law-enforcement officials and prosecutors said they asked the charges be dismissed during a preliminary hearing so they could pursue a direct indictment of the man through a Franklin County grand jury.

The 28-year-old Columbus man was arrested after Dublin police, with assistance from the Columbus Division of Police SWAT team, executed a search warrant at his residence Aug. 7 in the 2000 block of Mock Road in Columbus.

Police reports show law enforcement officials seized six guns, including one that had been reported stolen; illicit drugs, including cocaine, crack cocaine and pills; and $106,000 in cash.

The man initially was charged with one count of trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, possession of weapons under disability and receiving stolen property, according to the release.
