By Cade Fowler - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany Dougherty Drug Agents seized what they call high quality and expensive marijuana from a northwest Albany home.

ADDU and GBI agents along with the Lee County Sheriff's Officer discovered a pound of Hydro weed during a raid on Lullwater Road.

It has an estimated street value of $5,000.

Agents arrested 22-year-old Mark Marietta and 20-year-old Kevin Ciciora who rented the house.  Several bongs, pipes, and a scale disguised as an I-phone were confiscated.

They're still trying to figure out who grew the pot.

"We're continuing to look to where this quality marijuana is. It's what we call Hydro. It's high quality, indoor grown type marijuana. We're looking to where that is and that's been turned over to the G-B-I and D-E-A to follow up on," said ADDU Commander Maj. Bill Berry.

Marietta and Ciciora are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession within one thousand feet of a school.
