Suspected pot grower busted

August 24, 2005 Cairo-- A Grady County man is accused of masterminding a lucrative pot business. But business is closed after drug agents executed a search warrant on his house Monday night.

Authorities say Richard Keith Davis was growing 22 pot plants that stood more than five feet tall. Agents also found more than half-a-pound of marijuana that had already been processed.

Grady Sheriff Harry Young says he's glad the gateway drug is off the streets. "It's easy for someone to come along and say try this, this is a little bit stronger, this will make you feel a lot better. That's the way a lot of these dope dealers do. They just want to try to infiltrate our young people," says Young.

Davis is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and manufacturing marijuana. He's also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
