A Broken Arrow man is in jail, accused of cooking up a unique form of marijuana inside his home.

It's the first case of its kind for the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office.

Neighbors said while they never had a problem with the people at the home, they did see a lot of foot traffic several times a day.

The Tulsa Police Gang Unit, along with Broken Arrow Police Department, Wagoner County deputies and the ATF said they found about a pound of hydroponic marijuana inside Jordan Kerwin's home.

"There was about two cookie sheets full of it. So, we would say it's a big quantity," Sheriff Chris Elliott said.

When investigators went inside with a search warrant, they said they found the materials needed to make it, and the process was underway.

Elliott said the street name for that form of marijuana is called "Dab," and once it's made, small amounts are used for smoking.

"They take marijuana and they put it through a process that results in extracting high levels of THC out of that marijuana," he said.

It doesn’t look like a leafy green plant. Instead, Elliott said, “It really resembles kind of a dark peanut brittle."

The sheriff said this is the first time he's had a case of "dab" in Wagoner County, and he's confident it will show up again.

"You don't have to have very much of it. So, you know, small little dabs of it you can keep in a very small container instead of having to keep a big baggie of marijuana, but you can still smoke it and get the same effect out of it," he said.

Kerwin is in the Wagoner County Jail on several drug and weapon complaints.

The sheriff said they also found two pistols, an AR-15 rifle and $5,000 cash inside the home.
