(COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH) -- A Colerain Township man has been arrested after police uncovered several pounds of marijuana in his possession.

Adam Woods, 32, faces charges of drug possession, drug trafficking and having weapons under disability.

Officers developed information concerning ongoing drug trafficking and began an investigation that led them to search the suspect's apartment with his consent. They uncovered over four pounds of marijuana, $2,000 in U.S. currency and an SKS assault rifle with over 1,000 rounds of ammunition.

The trafficking charge is enhanced because the violation occurred within 1,000 feet of a school. The suspect was trafficking in drugs, making the possession of the assault rifle a felony.

Woods is being held in the Hamilton County Detention Center.
