Police in Clemson arrested one person and seized 50 pounds of marijuana and about $30,000 in cash from a home, Friday.

37-year-old Phillip Michael McRae was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

After receiving an out-of-state tip about the delivery of a large amount of drugs to a Clemson address, the Clemson City Police Department working with the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office and SLED executed a search warrant on the Hawthorne Street house.

In addition to the drugs and cash, other items consistent with the sale of illegal drugs were also seized.
