PHOENIX — More than 100 marijuana plants and several firearms were found inside an Ahwatukee home on Tuesday, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a release.
When police entered the home at 16830 S. Yellow Court, they found evidence of a significant growing operation.
One of the firearms found was an AK-47. Several handguns were also found.
The find stemmed from a search warrant that was issued Monday after a traffic stop. A police canine unit found seven pounds of marijuana inside a vehicle. The driver, 24-year-old Johnny Lee, was arrested.
Lee is facing multiple charges, including transportation of marijuana, cultivation of marijuana, money laundering and weapons charges.
The search warrant was served jointly by DPS and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office SWAT.
