EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) A southwestern Illinois man is facing felony drug charges after police say they raided a home and seized more than three pounds of marijuana.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 23-year-old Kyle Garvey is charged in Madison County with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver it.

Authorities arrested Garvey last Thursday while serving a search warrant on an Edwardsville home.

Garvey does not have a listed home telephone number. Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney.
