Big trouble for a convict after authorities in Lea County find drugs, cash, and a gun at a home.

Authorities arrested 24-year-old Aubrey Savage.

He was wanted for violating his probation.

The Hobbs SWAT team found him at a home, and that's when he found himself in even more hot water.

The Lea County Drug Task Force says he had about 6 hundred dollars worth of marijuana on him, a handgun and more than 10 thousand dollars in cash.

Now police say he's facing even more charges.

Three underage kids were also found in the home with Savage.

Police say it appeared they had been smoking pot, and were arrested too.
