HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The Butler County Sheriff's Office has seized over 500 pounds of marijuana and several custom cars as part of a drug investigation.

The drugs were recovered several months ago from the front end of a tractor trailer on Symmes Road in Fairfield. An investigation has been ongoing since then by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and the Butler County Sheriff's Undercover Regional Narcotics Task Force (BURN).

Police also seized six customized vehicles, including one with an Incredible Hulk theme, and a gun.

Thomas E. King, 31, of Fort Wayne, Ind. is charged with possession of drugs.

Police say additional federal charges are possible.
