CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

Five people are in custody after authorities served a search warrant on a Chandler home and seized $30,000 in cash, along with a stash of weapons, ammunition and drugs.

Detectives with the Arizona Department of Public Safety's Criminal Investigations Division said tools used to weigh and package drugs were also confiscated on Tuesday.

Three rifles, a shotgun and four handguns were seized. One handgun had previously been reported stolen to the Tempe Police Department.

The drugs seized included half an ounce of methamphetamine, three grams of heroin and an ounce of marijuana, all of which were prepackaged for sale, DPS detectives said.

Four suspects were found inside the home. A fifth person who hid in the attic, refused to comply with orders to surrender. Authorities fired pepper balls into the home, and the suspect gave up.  

The search warrant stemmed from a traffic stop earlier this month. A DPS officer conducted a search of the vehicle and located methamphetamine, heroin and prescription pills packaged for sale.

Information obtained during the traffic stop led detectives to the home in Chandler.

The occupants of the vehicle were arrested during the traffic stop, DPS said.
