A manager at a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Holly Springs is accused of selling drugs out of the store.

According to search warrants obtained by ABC11, 29-year-old Benjamin Crook hid marijuana in empty pizza boxes when he sold it to an informant.

Crook was charged with possession with intent to distribute, selling marijuana, delivering marijuana, and maintaining a dwelling to keep/sell a controlled substance.

In the search warrants, an investigator with the Holly Springs Police Department says he got information from a confidential informant that Crook was involved in illegal drug activity at a home on Gooseberry Drive. The informant also said Crook was a general manager at a Domino's Pizza on Crossway Lane.

The informant allegedly purchased marijuana from Crook once in January and two times in early February. The second two times, the drugs were placed in a plastic bag hidden inside empty pizza boxes and sold for cash at the restaurant.

Investigators also went through the trash at the home on Gooseberry Drive and found evidence of drug activity.

The search warrants state that investigators seized 21.8 grams of marijuana from a locker at the restaurant and another 18 grams in a safe in the Gooseberry Drive home.
