The search, which came after a month-long investigation, turned up a handgun, 26.8 grams of pot in multiple bags and other drug paraphernalia, the sheriff’s office said. The gun had previously been reported stolen.

Cobb, who lives in the home, was charged with a felony count of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver and misdemeanor counts of possession of cannabis, possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful use of a weapon without a FOID card and endangering the life or health of a child, authorities said.

He was released from the Lake County Jail after posting 10 percent of his $20,000 bail, according to the sheriff’s office. He was due back in court on Thursday.
