FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — A Fayetteville man has been arrested on suspicion of selling large quantities of marijuana from his home.

Matthew Young, 39, was booked into the Washington County Jail on Thursday (March 3), and is facing several charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and controlled substances with intent to deliver, according to his booking records.

During a search of Young’s residence, detectives found 61 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $12,500 in cash, according to a press release. They also found evidence that Young had a much larger amount of marijuana inside the garage shortly before police served the search warrant.

Detectives found a fishing jacket that had been dumped about 20 feet off a dirt road, which they believe belonged to Young, the release stated.

Police found a Victoria’s Secret bag and a white plastic container inside the jacket, which contained about 487 grams of marijuana, oxycodone, THC edibles, mushrooms, marijuana wax, marijuana hash and drug paraphernalia, according to the release.

Young’s first court appearance will be Monday (March 7).
