DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

Coffee Drug Unit detectives and the Georgia State Patrol's  Aviation unit were conducting aerial surveillance in Coffee County last week, when a small marijuana grow was discovered in a dog pen.

Officers spotted the pot plants growing in the open in the back yard of 125 South Pointe Drive in Douglas. 

Detective investigated, and found 26 plants growing in the dog pen.  They searched further, and found 15 more pot plants growing in the woods behind the house.

Detectives pulled up all the plants.

No one was found home while they made the raid, so they came back the following day, and arrested Travis Eugene Brinson and Jerry Lynn Rawls.

Both men have been charged with Manufacturing Marijuana. 

This is the second time in two years that the drug until found marijuana plants growing at this address.

On Saturday, officers went to 1617 Buckhead Road in Westgreen, and discovered 16 marijuana plants growing on the property.  

Keith Kiler Kirkland was arrested for Manufacturing Marijuana in that incident.
