VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A copper theft investigation turns up a drug operation.

The metal theft case led Lowndes County authorities to mobile home on Cedar Street Wednesday where they found 44 marijuana plants.

They charged 32-year old Kimberly Parsley, 17-year old James McCollum, and 42-year old Todd Parsley with marijuana possession, manufacturing marijuana, and having the tools to grow the drug.

Todd Parsley is also charged with having a stolen 357 magnum.

Investigators found the plants in the master bedroom, greenhouse, and woods behind the house.
