Marion County law enforcement are looking for a man after he fled the scene during a Friday afternoon search warrant.

Authorities arrested Courtney Mason, 22, in connection to the incident. 

During the warrant, officers searched the residence and recovered crack, marijuana, oxycodone, morphine, 13 guns, weighing scales, baggies used for distribution and $10,200 in cash. 

According to investigators, both suspects face four counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm.
