ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents are concerned that unsuspecting East Albany kids may have been served brownies laced with marijuana.

During a raid on Monday afternoon, drug unit agents found dozens of pot brownies in a home.

They also found other evidence that makes drug agents think it may have a been a large-scale drug operation. 

Officials found dozens of brownies, each containing marijuana, that were discovered during Monday's raid.

"I've never seen it. I've heard about it on television, but I never thought I would see it in real life," said ADDU Commander Major Prurince Dice.

Drug agents checked a home in the 900 block of South Street because of a complaint. 

Outside they smelled marijuana, and got a search warrant to raid the home.

Inside they found a small amount of marijuana, and the brownies.  

They arrested 21-year-old Lyatray Buchanan, charging him with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Agents were disturbed to find several bags that appeared to have at one time held large amounts of marijuana.

"Marijuana residue in extremely large bags, which lead us to believe that there were large quantities of drugs being transported or sold out of this location," explained Dice.

Drug agents are also concerned who those brownies were intended for, they plan to go door to door around South Street, to see if kids have eaten them.

"We want to make sure that these folks, who obviously don't care anything about life, are not poisoning our children in the community," said Dice. "So that is on our to do list. A priority."

Drug agents are also investigating to see where the marijuana came from, and if others were involved in a marijuana organization. Buchanan was released from jail on $7,000 bond on Tuesday.

And the brownies are bound for a state drug lab for more testing.
