A Raleigh police officer was confronted by a man during a drug investigation who brandished a handgun and then ran into his residence where police found a stock pile of alcohol.

According to police records, a Raleigh officer was conducting a drug violation investigation on East Street when he was approached by a man later identified as Harry Reed.

The officer asked Reed to maintain a safe distance to which Reed replied he was safe. The officer repeatedly asks for Reed to keep his distance. Reed then tells the officer, "I have something for you," the report shows. Reed then leaves and enters his nearby apartment.
