Agents with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Unit responded to an anonymous tip last week about the whereabouts of a fugitive that led to seizing 21 marijuana plants.

Jesse Nichols, of 216 Sycamore Road, Boiling Spring Lakes, was wanted in Delaware for domestic threats and assault, Capt. Gene Caison said.

When drug agents responded to Nichols’ Boiling Spring Lakes home Tuesday, Jan. 6, they found and seized 21 marijuana plants and 10 grams of marijuana, Caison said.

Nichols was charged with manufacture of marijuana, maintaining a dwelling to keep a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and fugitive from justice.
