During the search, officers found 13.8 pounds of hydroponic cannabis, 5.5 pounds of THC oil, 2.2 pounds of THC butter and four firearms. Police located three vehicles and $67,000 in cash, which police believe to be proceeds from drug dealing, according to the release.

"The large amount of seized drugs, cash and weapons suggests this residence was a large-scale supplier of narcotics within Corpus Christi," the release stated.
