CADIZ, Ky. (AP) - The Trigg County Sheriff’s Department arrested a man on charges of marijuana trafficking and possession, among other offenses.

Multiple news sources report Sheriff Ray Burnham received a tip concerning drug activity at a residence on Kentucky 272 Sunday. Authorities didn’t immediately release his identity.

Burnham says as he drove by the residence, a man was seen outside allegedly smoking a marijuana cigarette.

Officials obtained a search warrant, then found over a half pound of marijuana, scales, pills, and other drug paraphernalia. Several firearms were also seized, as well as more than $500 cash.

A Trigg County deputy charged the man with trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm of a convicted felon, possession of a controlled substance, and prescription not in a proper container.
