Police officers, including the department's police dog, executed a search warrant on the home in the 400 block of Gregg Lane about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said. They recovered about 1,000 grams of marijuana and marijuana wax, 1 gram of cocaine, 12 pills believed to be Adderall -- a prescription medication used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder -- about $2,600 in cash and other items, according to Cook County assistant state's attorney Alyssa Grissom.
