A Union Grove man was arrested early Wednesday morning after police officers found a large quantity of marijuana wax at his residence.

While executing a search warrant at house on the 1300 block of Center St. in Union Grove, officers from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department Metro Drug Unit and the K-9 unit from the Caledonia Police Department arrested Austin S. Osborne, 19, of Union Grove.

Osborne was found with nearly 150 grams of marijuana “dabs,” a concentrated marijuana substance that resembles wax.

Police believe the wax was produced commercially, because of the branded packaging it was in. They think it was probably shipped or mailed to Osborne from a state with legalized recreational marijuana use laws.

Osborne is being held on the following charges, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, keeping a drug house, possession of drug paraphernalia.
