A man was arrested Thursday after investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office found nearly half a pound of marijuana in his possession.
On Thursday, investigators with the sheriff office’s Crime Suppression Unit served a search warrant at the home of Courtney Mesonta Carter, 38, on the 600-block of Belt Road, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. Investigators under primary Investigator Taylor Helton were able to determine Carter was selling marijuana out of the home after a confidential informant made a purchase over the last week.
During the search, investigators found 165.4 grams of marijuana in bags ready for sale, and other drug-related objects like digital scales, Yarbrough said. Investigators also found and seized $9,155 in cash in various denominations.
Carter was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
