Another drug trafficking bust in western Kentucky. This time investigators in Madisonville say they found two and a half pounds of marijuana inside a home.

20-year-old John Tyson is accused of having suspicious packages mailed to his home on Brett Dr. His arrest comes after a two-month investigation that led detectives to serve a search warrant on Tyson's home.

They say they found a large amount of pot, more than $2,000 in cash, and other paraphernalia used to traffic drugs.
