Marijuana Plants Seized in Marengo County

Written by Staff

While exploring a wooded area in the southeastern corner of Marengo County this morning, Agents of the Alabama Alcohol Beverage Control Board found and destroyed several marijuana plants. A subsequent search of a nearby residence turned up additional cannabis. That too was confiscated. 

ABC Agents were conducting a rural woodland operation near the Vineland Community when they encountered a suspect. Seven marijuana plants were growing nearby. After initial questioning, the suspect agreed to allow the Agents to search his home. An additional 142 grams of marijuana, already packaged for sale, was found and seized. The plants are valued at $2,000 each. The packaged cannabis is estimated to be worth about $1,500. An arrest and formal charges are pending further investigation.

The agents are part of the ABC Board’s Moonshine Task Force that investigates tips, develops leads, and are skilled in tracking and following trails that are often associated with this type of illegal operation.  Agents are responsible for enforcing laws dealing with alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs.

Anyone with any information about this case or any other illegal activity is encouraged to call the ABC Board Hotline at 1-800-327-7341. Cash awards are available for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

Agents of the Alabama Alcohol Beverage Control Board late last week discovered numerous marijuana plants growing in a rural portion of east Bullock County. The agents were checking an area where cannabis plants had been grown previously.

The search took place last Thursday, July 17, in a wooded area along Bullock County Road 18. The rustic county road connects Bullock County Roads 61 and 35, and is located about 10 miles southeast of Union Springs. Agents found ten marijuana plants growing on the edge of the woods, next to a field that had been cleared recently. Agents had reason to believe that dope farmers would return to the area because the field had been used to grow marijuana in the past. The plants had an estimated street value of $2,000 each.

The agents are part of the ABC Board’s Moonshine Task Force that investigates tips, develops leads, and are skilled in tracking and following trails that are often associated with this type of illegal operation.  Agents are responsible for enforcing laws dealing with alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs.

Anyone with any information about this case or any other illegal activity is encouraged to call the ABC Board Hotline at 1-800-327-7341. Cash awards are available for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
