Pounds of marijuana, cash and guns were seized Monday by the Butler County Sheriff’s Office narcotics taskforce when houses in Hamilton and Middletown were searched.

Search warrants were executed by the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics Taskforce (BURN) at residences in the 700 block of Gordon Smith Boulevard in Hamilton and the 1700 block of Yankee Road in Middletown, where approximately 40 pounds of marijuana, more than $42,000 in cash and four guns and high capacity drum magazines were found.
