In what Albany Dougherty Drug Unit officials call possibly their largest drug haul, Lester Joffrion, 31, was arrested, and ADDU displayed the property they confiscated from his home.
The Macon Telegraph reports that state funding for the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter was cut by 11% this year and 25% in fiscal 2014.
The board overseeing fair voted Wednesday to increase the price of tickets for midway rides.
Among tickets that will see a price increase are the armbands, which will go from $16 to $20 on the opening and closing days and Oct. 7-10.
The change comes shortly after a decision in September to raise gate prices from $8 to $10 for this year's fair, which runs Oct. 3-13.
