MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The "Find my iPhone" app lead Marietta, Ga., officers to find a large stash of drugs and guns, police say.

Someone in the Marietta Hotel reported a phone missing around 3 a.m. on Tuesday. Using the app, police followed the phone's signal to the northeast corner of the Autumn View apartment building where they smelled the strong odor of marijuana coming from a unit with all the lights on.

Officers knocked and announced themselves. One suspect allegedly tried to jump from the second-floor balcony. When police took the suspect into custody, they found the stolen iPhone on his person.

Officer David Baldwin told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that police seized a stash of 1,100 grams of marijuana; five handguns, three of which were stolen; 42 tablets of Oxycodone; an assault rifle and a digital scale.

Several theft, weapons and narcotics charges were brought against Afton Leak, 22, and Brandon A. King, 20, both of Marietta.

Five others were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
