A Wichita Falls man is behind bars on drug charges after authorities serve a search warrant this morning.
Fifty-seven year old Rickey Leotha Shaffer is in the Wichita County jail charged with possession of marijuana.
Sheriff's officials teamed with the Wichita County District Attorney's Drug Enforcement Division and served a drug warrant this morning at Shaffer's home on North Beverly Drive.
Sheriff David Duke says officials searched inside and outside of his home and found marijuana and other items.

"We found over two pounds of marijuana at this location along with bags, scales, sealing machines.  Things to package it up with.  So right now, we're still finishing up the search and picking up property that's gonna be seized," Sheriff Duke says.

Sheriff Duke says Shaffer has a long history of selling and being arrested on drug charges.
His bond amount has not been set yet.
