45-year-old Michael Brewer had a warranted executed at his residence in 900-block of 180th Avenue turning up a large amount of cannabis.

A release from Monmouth Police doesn’t say how much cannabis was seized but that Brewer’s being charged with possession with intent to deliver over 500 grams but less than 2,000, which is a Class 2 felony.

Brewer’s also being charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and unlawful use of weapons.
