A masked gunman went away empty-handed following a home invasion this weekend.
But police investigating the case were a little more successful.
While searching the home during the investigation, Laurinburg police say they discovered drugs and arrested two people residing at the home on Saturday.
The home invasion occurred near midnight at 505 Caledonia Road, according to Lt. Cliff Sessoms of the Laurinburg Police Department .
“A subject came into the residence armed and wearing a mask and demanding money,” Sessoms said. “From my understanding the suspect left without obtaining any valuables or any money.”
Though several people were at home and the suspect did discharge his firearm while inside the house, no one was injured.
A subsequent seach of the home revealed a stolen firearm as well as drugs and drug paraphernalia. Laquana Adams, 24, and Corey Leak, 37, were arrested.
Adams and Leak were each charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession of stolen firearm, maintaining a dwelling for the sale of a controlled substance, possession of firearm by convicted felon, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Adams was placed under a $15,000 secured bond and Leak was placed under a $25,000 secured bond.
Police are still investigating the identity of the intruder.
Authorities are also investigating two other unrelated weekend shootings.
At 6:35 p.m. on Friday, police responded to the home of 16-year-old Thomas Perhealth on Vance Street, following reports of a shooting. Perhealth had been shot in the lower body and was treated at Scotland Memorial Hospital and Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
The teen is in stable condition and has returned home, but police continue to investigate the identity of the shooter. Sessoms described Perhealth as “uncooperative” with the investigation.
In an unrelated incident, Saturday at 1:35 a.m., an occupied Pine Street residence was shot at, though the residents, Kendrick Parker and Victoria Jackson, were unhurt. There are no leads as to the identity of the shooter.
“They were inside the residence and there are no witnesses,” Sessoms said.
