MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - The Bibb County Sheriff's Office recovers more than 100 marijuana plants, which at full growth could have been worth around $210,000 in street value.
An investigation led to the office's drug unit serving a search warrant Thursday afternoon at 6941 Thomaston Road in west Bibb County.
34-year-old Scott Eugene Seymour, Jr. was arrested in connection with two indoor marijuana grow operations on the property.
Officers found 105 marijuana plants, 43 stalks, Xanax pills and a shotgun.
They also recovered equipment used to grow the marijuana.
"There's all kinds of information out there on growing," says Sheriff David Davis. "There's books that can be bought and obviously on the internet you can find information on how to grow it. People can get it, but this is the result that will happen. We'll wind up seizing it and you'll wind up in jail."
Seymor is currently being held in the Bibb County LEC without bond.
Since his grandmother lived in one of the two houses he used to grow the marijuana, he's being charged with endangering an elderly person.
That's on top of two other charges: Trafficking of Drugs and Schedule 4 Possession.
