TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- Pinal County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Casa Grande man after he tried to flush about four pounds of marijuana down the toilet.

Pinal County Narcotics Task Force officers served a search warrant for 20-year-old Christopher Cruz's home Tuesday.

When they arrived, Cruz was in the process of attempting to flush the drugs down the toilet. Deputies also found two shotguns and a handgun inside the home. They arrested the suspect immediately.

He was booked into the Pinal County Jail for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, misconduct involving weapons, destruction of evidence and two counts of endangerment, since two young children were living with him.

He is currently being held without bond.
