BUTLER TOWNSHIP — Butler Township Police seized nearly 40 pounds of marijuana, a gun, and almost $7,000 cash from a room at a Miller Lane hotel Monday evening.

Officers were dispatched to the Extended Stay America at 6688 Miller Lane after a narcotics complaint. The complaint was initiated after housekeeping staff found a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia in the room.

The investigation found that a guest in the room had quickly loaded three duffel bags of items from the room and taken them to a car in the parking lot.

After obtaining a search warrant for the car and other property, the seizure was made.

The investigation is still ongoing according to a statement released by the Butler Township Police Department. The case will be presented to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s office for review once the investigation is complete.

Because the investigation is ongoing, and no charges have been filed, the suspect(s) have not been named.
