SPRING GROVE – A Spring Grove man faces multiple drug possession charges after police raided his home Friday and found 35 grams of marijuana and multiple rifles.

He was charged additionally in McHenry County with drug paraphernalia possession, according to a McHenry County Sheriff news release.

Lake County Sheriff officials pulled Riotto over on Thursday, searched and found 113 grams of marijuana inside his car. Based on an investigation by both Lake and McHenry counties, sheriff officials executed a search warrant Friday on Riotto's home.

Police found 35 grams of marijuana, 3 grams of cannabis butter, packaging materials, drug paraphernalia and cash, the news release states. They also recovered an AK-47, AR-15, and three semi-automatic pistols.
