Police in Henry County say they arrested two people at the home of rapper Waka Flocka Flame for possession of a minor amount of marijuana.

Johan Michael Antney, 20, of Jamaica, N.Y., and Tyrell Raylon Mingo, 20, of Stockbridge, were arrested Thursday for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

Police say the house where the raid took place is the residence of Juaquin James Malphurs, a.k.a. Waka Flocka Flame.

Malphurs was not home, but fellow rapper Gucci Mane -- legally Radric Davis -- was handcuffed and then freed, according to 750 AM and now 95.5 FM News Talk WSB.

Malthurs rents the house from another man, WSB reported.

The arrest occurred after officers searched a house in the Eagles Landing subdivision at around 7 a.m. and found two guns -- a Kel Tech .223 caliber sub gun, and a Taurus .40 caliber semi automatic, Henry County police Major Jason Bolton said.

Bolton did said additional charges are pending on "at least one other subject."

The house where the two were arrested was in the 100 block of Bayberry Hills, Bolton said. County records indicate that the home is not owned by either Malphurs or Davis. But voter registration records from July 2009 indicate that Malphurs, 24, did live down the street.
