They found a half pound of marijuana in small packages,....worth about 25-hundred dollars on the street. 24 year old Vernon Harris was arrested, along with a man refusing to give his identity. They are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and intent to distribute drugs within one thousand feet of a school.

Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards said "If you have drug sales going on in your community, please contact the Dougherty County Drug Unit or contact the D.A. office. We will try to help you. We want you to help us clean up your neighborhoods."
