Charges have been filed against two Oklahoma men who were arrested after authorities said they found illegal drugs and cash at their homes.

According to authorities, on July 24, 2014, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and District 21 Task Force Investigators conducted a search warrant at 34-year-old Benjerman Barron's home, located in the 1400 block of S.W. 35th Street in Oklahoma City. 

Authorities said they found nine pounds of hydroponic marijuana, a large amount of U.S. currency, purported steroids, a loaded revolver, and Dominion and Control belonging to Barron.

Barron's friend, 34-year-old Mathew Gililland, was also at the home at the time. During a search of Gililland, DEA agents found about $9,000 in cash in his back pocket. Gililland reportedly told the agents that he was a drug dealer and that he robbed drug dealers. When asked how he robbed them, Gililland told the agents, "the same way law enforcement did."

Gililland gave consent for DEA agents to search his home in Cleveland County. Agents said they found marijuana, scales, items used for packaging marijuana for resale, CDS mushrooms, firearms, and a document showing Dominion and Control.

On November 5, both Barron and Gililland have been charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, possession of an offensive weapon while committing a felony, and possession of proceeds derived from a violation of the uniform controlled dangerous substance act.
