Pot plants found in Echols

August 5, 2004

Echols County - Hundreds of marijuana plants are found growing in South Georgia.

One hundred and ninety-four plants were found in some woods off Highway 94, about 24 miles east of Statenville. At full maturity, the drugs would have a street value of more than $400,000.00.

"This is a pretty good average for one day's worth of work, we found the drugs in the first two hours of flying," said Sheriff Randy Courson.

The land the drugs were being grown on is owned by a Timber Company. No arrests have been made.
