A Rowan County man was arrested Friday for international drug smuggling operations.

Rowan County Sheriff's Office, United States Department of Homeland Security and the United States Postal Services arrested Jafari Brian Johnson for attempting to smuggle cocaine into the United States from a foreign country.

Johnson received a package that was mailed through the USPS from outside the country. Officials obtained a search warrant shortly after and seized two kilograms of cocaine, five pounds of marijuana, two 9-millimeter handguns, approximately $12,000, assorted gold and diamond jewelry and evidence of numerous other packages that had been shipped to him, deputies say.

One of the guns was reported stolen by the Kannapolis Police Department.

Johnson was arrested and placed under a $1,000,000 secured bond.
