WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - One person has been charged, and others may be named in what's being called the largest drug bust in Marathon County history.

The total seizure was valued at over $2 million.

33-year-old Bryan Arnold of Wausau was being held under a $25,000 cash bond on six felony drug-related counts and a misdemeanor for possessing drug paraphernalia.

Officers said they were tipped off by a suspicious package that a local delivery company intercepted. Sheriff's deputies and a K-9 partner seized over 2,100 grams of processed marijuana at a Wausau home where Arnold lives.

Officials said the investigation took them to a second house near Athens, where more processed marijuana was found, along with over 725 plants and several thousand dollars. The owners of that house could face charges.

The case is still under investigation. Arnold is due back in court a week from Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
