Lincoln Man Arrested For Having Pot, Guns and Thousands In Cash

LINCOLN -- Hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, more than 23 pounds of pot and several guns have been found in two different Lincoln homes.   The Narcotics Task Force tracked down 57-year-old Gary Tarrence early Tuesday evening at his apartment near 24th and "C", where pot was found in his home, including the refrigerator; along with nearly $6,000 in cash.  Investigators later found out another $220,000 in cash and nine guns at a relative's home in the 800 block of South 39th Street.  Police Officer Katie Flood says it was a Crime Stoppers tip that led to the bust, which is unusual since the amount of pot and money recovered happens during the course of an investigation.  Tarrence was arrested for several offenses, including possession with intent to deliver and possession of a firearm during a drug violation.
