NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Norman police have served a search warrant for the second time this month at a south side pipe and novelty store where the owner and an employee face drug charges.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1RCTVpD ) that police confiscated merchandise and money from The Friendly Market on Monday.

Earlier this month, 31-year-old Stephen Holman, who’s a city councilman as well as general manager of the store, and 62-year-old Robert Cox, the store’s owner, were each charged with a felony drug count of acquiring proceeds from drug activity. They also face six counts each of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges, filed Dec. 10, stem from a Dec. 7 raid. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
