Acting on a tip from a concerned citizen, Milwaukee police uncovered nearly $1 million in cash and more than 10,000 THC vaping cartridges in a small home on a modest street on the city’s south side last week.
Police searched a 2-bedroom Cape Cod on W. Norwich Court on Tuesday, finding 18 pounds of marijuana, aside from the cartridges filled with THC oil, as well as a loaded weapon, and took into custody a couple in their 30’s living there.
According to a criminal complaint filed Saturday, police arrested Govanny "Gio" Molina, 34, and Amanda Ware, 30, both on charges of maintaining a drug trafficking place, use of a dangerous weapon and possession with intent to distribute more than 10,000 grams of THC or 200 plants, as party to a crime.

The cash was found in a bedroom closet tucked inside two 20-gallon plastic storage totes, one with the $450,500 and the other with $452,680. Police also found about $30,000 in a dresser drawer.
