A crime stoppers tip helped put a Ft. Walton Beach man behind bars on drug and weapon related charges.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's officials arrested 29-year-old Keith Harris on Friday.

Authorities began an investigation after receiving a crime stoppers tip in May. Friday, they served a search warrant where Harris was staying.

The Okaloosa County drug task force found 20 pounds of marijuana, a marijuana plant growing in his room, cocaine, $16,000 dollars cash in a safe, a loaded handgun and a loaded shotgun.

In addition to drug charges, Harris is charged with grand theft of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
