Leesburg -- A fifth arrest is made as the Lee County Sheriff's Office continue to unravel leads in the largest marijuana bust in county history.   

Thursday, 26-year-old Kasey Pearce was arrested on charges of manufacturing marijuana and possession of tools to make a controlled substance.  Pearce was arrested at her probation officer's office. 

Investigators  say information and witness accounts place Pearce living inside the home at 180 Fowler in the  Hunter's Ridge Subdivision.  They believe Pearce helped tend to the plants, but still haven't determine who the ring leader is. 

"We're eventual going to find out that one of these was higher up in the food chain than the others.  Right now, everybody's going it's him or her, they're all pointing at each other," said Col. Duane Sapp of the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's office is getting 30 calls a day from informants concerning information on this case. 

Bond was also revoked for Frank Spring after he lied to the judge about his occupation and prior criminal record.
