(LYONS) - An ongoing criminal investigation involving several law enforcement agencies in Greene County, plus a tip received by Greene County Crime Stoppers, resulted in the arrest of a Lyons man late Monday night.

27-year-old Jonathan Kent Quillen is facing a long list of charges including dealing a controlled substance and marijuana, burglary, possession of stolen guns and theft.

Greene County Sheriff's Department, Linton and Lyons police officers served a search warrant at Quillen's home in Lyons Monday.

The Greene County Daily World reports that police seized 19 bags of marijuana, numerous types of prescription pills, digital scales, packaging material and ledgers.
