CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Drug charges were filed against a man originally charged for strong armed robbery, police said, and they also charged the man's siblings.

According to a release from Charleston Police, 21-year-old Monterio Brown was arrested Tuesday for a strong armed robbery that happened on Magazine Street back in March.

When officers searched Brown's home, they said they found 25 pounds of marijuana, $14,290 in cash and a handgun.

Now Brown is also charged with trafficking marijuana, distribution of a controlled substance within close proximity of a school and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

CPD also filed those same charges against Brown's brother, 19-year-old Jermane Julius Givens Jr. and his sister, 23-year-old Tanesha Quilann Fields.

Brown was given a bond totaling $375,000 and an added charge of probation violation.
