CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. -- A man’s call for help brought Canadian County Sheriff’s deputies to a rural Yukon home near Gregory and Highway 66.

Undersheriff Chris West says a man claimed he had been shot at by 22-year-old Zachary Given. When authorities got to the home, they did not find anyone hurt, but did smell a strong odor that caught their attention.

West says that odor was more than $20,000 of high-grade marijuana.

"They wrote up for a warrant and got a search warrant for the residence, went into the home and there was a big safe that was in there," West said.

In that safe, investigators say they found the two pounds of weed, 10 firearms, and hundreds of pills.

"It was all set up for distribution,” West said.

On top of that, they found $4,293 in cash.

Shortly after the discovery, deputies put Given in handcuffs and took him to jail.

As for the shooting, investigators are still looking into that.

"Of whether or not the shooting actually went down. Whether or not he just pointed the gun at him. Whether he was actually shooting at him," West said.

Given is out of jail on a $55,000 bond.

Thursday, NewsChannel 4 tried talking to people at the home where the bust was made.

Our crew was told to get off the property.
