Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol have arrested a Fort Calhoun man as part of a large drug bust in Knox County.

On Wednesday, a search warrant was executed on a residence just northeast of Lindy in Knox County. At that location, Nebraska State patrol investigators located more than six pounds of psilocybin mushrooms, three pounds of marijuana, a small amount of cocaine, pharmaceutical pills, and drug paraphernalia. Investigators also found four firearms and explosive material.

Investigators subsequently arrested 31-year-old Jacob Drews. He was lodged in the Washington County Jail in Blair Nebraska.

The residence near Lindy is owned by Paul and Brenda Drews of Fort Calhoun.
