Homicide detectives investigating a death reported Thursday morning in Spring Valley stumbled upon over 150 pounds of marijuana and $36,000 in cash, sheriff's department officials said Monday. 

Deputies responded to a home on Lemon Street to make a welfare check at about 6 a.m. Thursday, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

When they arrived, they found the back door open and the body of a dead male inside. 

Deputies said the circumstances around the man's death were suspicious and they requested a search warrant. 

While serving the search warrant, they found $36,000 in cash and 150 pounds of marijuana in the house where the body was found. The cash and marijuana were seized by the department's Narcotics Task Force. 

The county medical examiner has identified the victim as Standford Roy Johnson. He died of multiple stab wounds. 

A suspect has not yet been identified. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321
