October 14, 2002

FITZGERALD- South Georgia drug agents find more marijuana. A tip led Ben Hill County authorities to a field Friday night where they dug up 150 plants. They arrested one person, but won't release a name until they finish the investigation.

Ben Hill Sheriff Thurman Ellis, said, "We need to let people know if they have information or they come across plants can't i.d., let sheriff's office, police, or drug task force know, because we don't want any drugs left around."

Two men have been charged with manufacturing and the intent to distribute more than a thousand marijuana plants found in Irwin County last week. 45-year olds Terry Dan Royal and George Darrell Harper are in the Ben Hill and Irwin County jails respectively. They are both from Ambrose in Coffee County.
