  • Madison County Sheriff found a fat stash of drugs over the weekend
Investigators at the Madison County Sheriff's Office say they got tipped off on Friday about a big ol' stash of drugs at 2704 Queen Street in Godfrey.

So they secured a search warrant and visited the residence. Sure enough, they found

  • Eight pounds of pot
  • Seventeen grams of cocaine
  • Forty-six doses of LSD
  • Drug paraphernalia and $1300+ in cash

Take a gander at the photo! That stuff would've made for quite a New Year's Eve, had it been recreational. To the deputies, however, it appeared more entrepreneurial.

Total street value of the drugs was estimated at $22,000.
