LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - Money seized from a previous drug bust helped catch another suspected drug dealer.

Investigators seized a home on St. Clair Drive in the Springdale Subdivision Wednesday. Investigators found eight pounds of marijuana, scales, and more than $9,500 in cash.

Stannis Collins and Praythia Miller are both charged with possession with intent to deliver and possession of a firearm during a felony.

Items and cash seized in the December bust of Bobby Lee Williams, helped pay for the equipment used in this bust.

"The money that we received from the D.A. forfeiture fund that comes from when we sell off the equipment and stuff we get from the drug user or the drug dealer it helps us. I mean we can't pay salaries with it but we can use it to buy equipment that we can fight drugs with," said Major David Carmichael, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Police also seized three vehicles from the residence. Both Collins and Miller could face federal charges in the case.
