Lee County-  Just two months ago, authorities arrested Bobby Lee Williams in Lee County and confiscated 57 pounds of marijuana, Wednesday night they busted him again.

Acting on a tip, investigators from the GBI, FBI, DEA, and the Lee County Sheriff's office again raided Bobby Lee Williams Crabapple Court home and found $12,000 in cash and a quantity of marijuana and diamond jewelry worth a total of $89,500. Sheriff Harold Breeden explained why Williams is facing federal charges.

"When you're trafficking most time we do go federal with it and when there's stolen guns involved it's mostly a federal case," said Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden.

Among the items confiscated, police found a book, titled "Busted By the Feds, a Manual for Defendants facing Federal Prosecution." Williams asked to keep the book while jailed, that request was denied. He was arraigned in federal court Thursday and held without bond.
