Tulsa Police confiscated over 22 pounds of marijuana and $332,700 in cash during a drug bust earlier this month. Police say the Organized Gang Unit and the aptly named K-9 officer Buster made the arrest.

Gang Unit officers served several search warrants at homes in the area of 300 South Trenton Avenue, 200 South Richard Avenue and a storage unit facility in Tulsa on May 1, 2014.

"As a result of these warrants, officers recovered approximately 22 pounds of high grade marijuana, one and a half pounds of psychedelic mushrooms and the cash," a news release states.

A narcotics officer and his K-9 partner Buster assisted in the investigation.

Police arrested 36-year-old Austin Hingey of Tulsa. He was booked on complaints of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, receiving drug proceeds derived from illegal activity and possession of controlled drugs with intent.
