WEBSTER COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - The seizure earlier this week of approximately $70,000 in marijuana and 13 firearms led to the arrest of four people suspected of growing marijuana in Eupora, according to a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics official.
Acting on a tip, MBN agents and Webster County deputies executed a search warrant Tuesday, January 25 at 110 Thinnes Drive, where they found a grow-house with 80 to 100 marijuana plants averaging three feet tall.
Elsewhere on the property, they found approximately three pounds of processed marijuana, MBN Director Marshall Fisher said.
Arrested in conjunction with the search and seizures were 49-year-old Gregory Thinnes and 46-year-old Rosanne Thinnes, both of 110 Thinnes Drive. The two are charged with manufacture of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
Also arrested were 24-year-old Joshua Thinnes, of 110-B Thinnes Drive, and 33-year-old Jerrold Myers, of 1335 Mississippi Hwy. 82. They, too, are charged with manufacture of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
All four suspects were transported to the Webster County jail, where they were being held pending initial court appearances.
