A Rock Hill man faces felony drug trafficking and other charges after police seized 930 oxycodone pills and two handguns.

David Johnian Rainey, 43, was charged with two counts of narcotics trafficking, distribution of drugs near a park or school, two counts of possession of narcotics with intent to distribute and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, police and jail records show.

In December, agents with the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit made a buy of 50 of the pills from Rainey at his home near Boyd Hill park and recreation center, according to reports and Marvin Brown, commander of the unit.

Police used a search warrant late Tuesday to go to Rainey’s home, where 880 more oxycodone pills were found, according to Brown and an incident report from Tuesday’s raid. Oxycodone is a powerful narcotic painkiller, available by prescription, but is otherwise illegal to sell.

The pills were packaged in bags of 10, Brown said.

Police also seized 80 units of Suboxone, another narcotic, as well as two handguns.

Rainey was released from the York County jail on bond late Wednesday, jail officials said.
