MANITOWOC (WKOW) - Police say they found 86 lbs. of marijuana inside a home in Manitowoc County.

Law enforcement officials are calling it the biggest drug bust ever. The drugs are worth more than $300,000.

Police searched the car of Brian Guilmette, 39, and found the marijuana inside, which lead them to his home where they discovered the rest. Police say the drugs were packaged with coffee beans to mask the smell.

"This is a growing trend.  We're seeing this all over Northeast Wisconsin," says Lt. Dave Remiker of the Manitowoc County Metro Drug Unit.
