Pot Growing Bust Update

Plants found in Hillsboro

This has not been a good week for those in Coffee County growing marijuana. Monday deputies from the Coffee County Sheriff’s department, along with ABC agents, raided a residence on Harpo Road and seized 112 plants, some outside and others from two rooms inside the house. They also seized several weapons and a stolen 4-wheeler from Grundy County. Then Tuesday, Sgt. Danny Ferrell seized two 10-foot plants from a residence near Normandy Lake. Authorities plan to present cases against those involved to the Coffee County Grand Jury.
