Three men and a woman in Winston-Salem face 35 drug charges and two weapons charges after local and federal law enforcement officers raided two homes in the city Thursday, authorities said.

The four were arrested after Winston-Salem police, Forsyth County sheriff’s deputies and federal ATF agents executed search warrants at homes on Thompson and Spaulding drives, said Corey Ray, a spokesman for the ATF office in Charlotte.

Edward Oliver Fulks, 30, of Spaulding Drive is charged with two counts of trafficking in marijuana and ecstasy, two counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, two counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver ecstasy, three counts of possession with intent manufacture, sell and deliver ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, according to arrest warrants.

Fulks also is charged with two counts of selling marijuana, one count of selling a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substances, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm by a felon, the warrants say.

Fulks is accused of possessing 49 pounds of marijuana and nearly 7 ounces of ecstasy, two warrants said. Fulks also is accused of selling marijuana and ecstasy to other people, maintaining a house to keep marijuana, Xanax and ecstasy and possessing packaging materials, such as Baggies, to store marijuana and a controlled substance as well as possessing a rifle and a handgun as a felon, other warrants said.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that Fulks wasn’t being held in custody, and it didn’t have any information about his bond.

Fulks is scheduled to appear in court on July 16.

Edward Rashad Lee Fulks, 26, of Thompson Drive is charged with selling and delivering cocaine, four counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, two counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substances, according to arrest warrants.

Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O'Neill announced that 30,000 people will have their criminal records expunged. The people were convicted at a time when state law treated anyone 16 and 17 as adults. Because of that, their convictions were public record. Juvenile records are sealed. O'Neill said he wanted to even the playing field so that people convicted before the law changed would have the same benefit as 16 and 17-year-olds convicted now. 

A Winston-Salem man has been indicted for second-degree murder in the death of his younger brother. Search warrants said home surveillance video showed the man carrying a sword up the stairs and later leaving the house with an assault rifle. The man told police that the rifle accidentally discharged during a fight with his brother, who he said was on Xanax. But police said in search warrants that the man's statements contradicted the physical evidence. 

Kalvin Michael Smith has filed a new appeal, seeking to overturn his conviction in the 1995 assault of Jill Marker, an assistant manager at the now-closed Silk Plant Forest store. His motion, filed Tuesday, cites newly-discovered evidence that his attorneys say prove his innocence, including a new witness who told police he saw a white man matching the description of the late Kenneth Lamoureux, enter the store just after 8:30 p.m. Dec. 9, 1995, with a Maglite flashlight. Smith's attorneys say police detectives ignored this and withheld other potentially favorable evidence to ensure Smith's conviction. 

Former Forsyth County GOP chair Nathan Tabor is facing new charges. This time, he is accused of conspiring with another man to steal and then sell a $6,000 golf cart. Over the past few months, Tabor, who chaired the Forsyth County Republican Party from 2009 to 2012 and has run for political office, has been charged with criminal offenses in three different counties, including Forsyth. He is accused of stealing items, such as catalytic converters in Brunswick County and cyberstalking family members in Catawba County, for which he was acquitted, and cyberstalking his former pastor.
