A Mahtomedi man faces drug charges after 10 pounds of marijuana was found at his home.
Washington County Sheriff deputies were dispatched to an address after a report of a residential alarm sounding. The home was later identified as belonging to Dustin Anthony Wittern.
Court documents state that when deputies arrived, they noticed that a large window close to the front door had been smashed, so they entered the premises. While checking the inside of the home to ensure safety, deputies noticed a marijuana smell. They then noticed that the rear hatch window of one of the vehicles was open.
According to court documents, when Wittern arrived, deputies were still investigating the home. A warrant was obtained, and during a search, officers found several bags of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $1,300 in cash.
The large bags found throughout the premises were determined to contain marijuana and had a total weight of 4.63 kilograms or 10 pounds.
