HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- A tip led investigators to a northwest Harris County home where they say they found drugs, weapons, and a large amount of cash.
Authorities took one person into custody.
According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a home in the 17900 block of Glenledi Drive on Monday.
Deputies said they detected a strong odor of marijuana, so they obtained a warrant and searched the property. They found 18 pounds of marijuana and a loaded "AR-15 military type assault rifle," two loaded handguns, and two shotguns. Over $13,000 in cash was also in the home, the sheriff's office said.
Officials estimate the pot had a street value of $90,000.
Deputies arrested and charged the homeowner, Esteban Martinez-Vadrar, with possession of marijuana. In a statement released Tuesday, officials said the felony drug charge could come with stricter sentencing due to the weapons and the home's location within a drug-free school zone.
Martinez-Vadrar is currently in the Harris County Jail.
