29-year-old Jacob W. Norris faces charges of first-degree trafficking in drugs, unlawful use of a weapon, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

These charges stem from a search warrant that was served on Oct. 2 at his residence of Nighthawk Road.

Authorities allegedly found three grams of suspected methamphetamine, a bong, a drug pipe,  and a loaded pistol in a jacket. Found in a second room was 493 grams of meth inside a piano bench.

A search of a barn on the property resulted in the alleged discovery of five shotguns along with a rifle.

According to an affidavit, Norris has previous convictions for burglary and theft in McDonald County.
