Tolbert was placed in the Lenoir County Jail in Kinston in lieu of a $50,000 secured bond.
LaGrange police Chief John Sullivan said information developed from that investigation led officers to a search of a home in the 400 block of Summit Street. Officers seized marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Two people were arrested and charged during the search. Sullivan said other charges were pending.
Treava Holloway, 32, was arrested for a probation violation and turned over to probation officers. Robert Johnson, 42, of Sam Lane, LaGrange, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was released from custody on a written promise.
The other people in the home face felony drug charges. One will be charged with conspiracy to sell and deliver cocaine and sale and delivery of cocaine. The other will be charged with maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of using and selling drugs, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office, Kinston police and the State Bureau of Investigation assisted in the investigation over several months.
