Man arrested in Monroe County drug bust


TOWNSHIP OF BYRON, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- A 30-year old man is awaiting formal charges after a drug bust, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Department. 

Monroe County Deputies say Christopher J. Odden was arrested after they found 31 marijuana plants, processed marijuana and indoor marijuana growing materials at a home Saturday morning. 

Police say they were responding to a domestic call at the house in the Township of Byron when they noticed a strong smell of marijuana. 

Deputies say they then searched the home and turned up the plants and other materials.  

The sheriff's office declined to confirm by phone Saturday afternoon whether the home was Odden's. 

The Monroe County Sheriff's office is still investigating the incident. The District Attorney's office is working on formal charges against Odden.
