VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A man who was arrested with 1 1/2 pounds of methamphetamine in his home on Nov. 2 was arrested again two weeks later with two more pounds of meth, according to police.

The Safe Streets Task Force and Vancouver Police Neighborhood Response Team served a search warrant at a home on the 11900 block of Northeast 37th Street in Vancouver on Nov. 2 as part of a meth distribution investigation.

Investigators said they found meth and more than 1 ounce of heroin, along with scales, packaging materials and $8,865.

Officers said 44-year-old Brian Burke was also in possession of seven guns, one of which was reported stolen. Burke is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

He was booked into the Clark County Jail on 12 felony counts. He subsequently bailed out of jail.

On Thursday, another warrant was served at Burke's home with the assistance of the Clark County Tactical Detective Unit.

During Thursday's search, police said they found another 2 pounds of meth in Burke's room.

Burke was arrested again and booked into the Clark County Jail on charges of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and methamphetamine distribution.

Police said Burke's home is only a few blocks from Image Elementary School and just down the street from a school bus stop.
