   More than 22 pounds of marijuana were found in a vehicle last week Thursday in Green Lake, making it the largest such bust in several years.

   Green Lake native Mitchell A. Rowley, 24, of Hayden, Colo., was charged last week Friday in relation to the drug bust.

   He is facing a felony count possession with intent to deliver THC in an amount more than 10,000 grams.

   The discovery was made by the Green Lake County Sheriff’s detectives and patrol along with Green Lake Police.

   According to the criminal complaint, law enforcement first received a search warrant for a free-air sniff around Rowley’s vehicle, located on Hill Street in the city of Green Lake.

   A K9 unit noted a positive hit on the vehicle, which enabled law enforcement to obtain a search warrant later that day for the vehicle.
