BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities in Brookings say a month-long investigation led them to seize 14 pounds of marijuana and almost $30,000 in cash.

Police arrested 30-year-old Joseph Jones and 40-year-old Walter Gaters, both of Brookings, on Thursday after they say they found three pounds of marijuana and $27,000 in cash while searching their home.

Further investigation led them to question 41-year-old John Seward, who led police on a short pursuit on Friday before being arrested. After his arrest, police searched Seward’s vehicle and say they found 11 pounds of marijuana, some meth and $2,000 in cash.

Jones and Gaters are facing multiple charges, including possession with intent to distribute over one pound of marijuana. Seward is also facing several charges, including possession with intent to distribute over one pound of marijuana and eluding.
