Dooly County Sheriff Van Peavy asked the Governors Task Force to make a sweep of his county, looking for marijuana plants that could be seen only from the air.

Late last week, they found some. Investigator Willie Coley reports that the task force spotted 12 plants in a remote area in Dooly County.

The plants belong to Robert Lee Worthington. He was not at the scene when the raid was conducted. He was already in custody on other charges for Dooly County.

The plants where found a few yards from the his home. The plants ranged from 1 foot to 6 feet high. Worthington was charged with manufacturing marijuana, a felony.
