Dougherty County couple arrested for grow house

March 20, 2008

Albany ---An Albany couple is arrested for growing marijuana in their house right in front of their two children.

Michael and Meghan Giese  were arrested Tuesday when Dougherty County Police spotted an open door in their house on Ramsey Road, and found the marijuana growing operation when they looked inside the home.

These are some of the $22,000 worth of marijuana plants that A.D.D.U. Agents seized when they searched the home. Agents also found grow lights, fertilizer, fans, scales, and 4 ounces of marijuana packaged for sale. A.D.D.U. Commander Major Derrell Smith said  "we don't know how long this has been going on at this one house. Even though these plants are small.   So even though it's not one of the big, million dollar marijuana recoveries, it's still pretty important."

The Giese's are charged with reckless conduct, because their six year old daughter and two year old son were living in the house with the growing operation.
