Moultrie - More than a dozen marijuana plants are found growing behind a business.

Police were called to a burglary in progress at "Our Choice of Clothing" store on West Central Avenue in Moultrie.

Investigators found the air-conditioning unit missing, but once inside found 15 potted marijuana plants growing on the patio behind the clothing store.

Twenty-seven-year-old Trabian Jones of Moultrie was arrested and faces numerous charges, including two drug charges.

Police say Jones worked in the barber shop behind the clothing store. There was also an outstanding warrant for his arrest for probation violation.

The marijuana plants' street value could reach $32,000.
