Thomasville, Georgia-- A stash of marijuana plants will never hit the streets of Thomasville.

Drug agents say they busted Joseph Vonterio Friday night for growing several pot plants. He has been charged with manufacturing marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. If convicted, Vonterio could face up to 20-years in prison.

Agents say they caught him as he was processing the plants for sale. "You could smell a strong odor of marijuana. We went to the back of the residence, in a bedroom, and they had several marijuana plants that had been snipped off and they were drying out," says Thomasville / Thomas County Drug Squad Commander, Kevin Lee.

Agents say they arrested Larry Murray with a pocket full of cocaine during the same bust. He has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. If convicted, Murray could spend up to 10 years in prison.
