Investigators say they were searching for stolen firearms when they executed a search warrant at a home on the 4200 block of County Highway DD in Birnamwood Wednesday afternoon.
The warrant was signed by a Price County judge to seize firearms and ammunition believed to have been stolen from their jurisdiction.
A witness tells NewsChannel a portion of Highway DD was closed as officers remained on scene.
Investigators say they found nearly $6,000, and hundreds of grams of marijuana.
One of the home's tenants, Dustan Truax was arrested.
He was formally charged Friday with maintaining a drug trafficking place, possession of THC, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Investigators say no weapons were found during the search.
Truax remains behind bars on the Marathon County jail. He'll return to court next week.
