Two men were arrested and charged after deputies discovered cash, handguns, marijuana and cocaine at two Lake City homes while serving search warrants.
The Columbia County Sheriff's Office said detectives from the Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force served search warrants Wednesday at an apartment at 411 N.W. Bascom Norris Drive and a home at 843 N.E. Catawba St.
