Albany - An Albany man, busted in the big Lee County marijuana growing operation, has sold his part of a popular nightclub. Dean Slaymaker was part owner of Charley B's on Dawson Road. He sold his share of the club to Frank Tillman of Cade Tillman Company, for $10.  Now, Tillman is applying for an alcohol license transfer.

While convicted felons are prohibited from getting alcohol licenses in Albany, commissioners think they should even screen people who are accused of felonies.  Code Enforcement Director Mike Tilson said, "We already are. However, because of the commissioner's concerns, I'll re-look at our process and make sure we are tapping into every resource possible."

Commissioners tabled transferring the alcohol license until more information about the applicant was provided.
