Douglas, GA (WALB) -  A marijuana trafficking bust in Coffee County takes several thousand dollars worth of pot is off the streets. When drug agents searched a mobile home in Coffee County, they found close to $13,000 worth of processed marijuana.

For the past few weeks, agents had been doing surveillance on Louis Narvez. He was arrested Wednesday in Jeff Davis County with a pound of marijuana.

After agents obtained a search warrant for Narvez's Coffee County home in the Town and Country mobile home park, they found bags of marijuana.

"Anytime we get a pound or more we consider it a good case. This is almost thirteen pounds, and it takes ten pounds for a trafficking case, so this is trafficking marijuana," said Major Daniel Paulk of the Coffee County Sheriff's Office.

 The Governor's Task Force flew over Coffee County and found 72 Marijuana plants in one plot Thursday.
