Some of the marijuana plants found growing in Grund’s home by Coweta County investigators. 


A man was arrested Wednesday night after investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office discovered he was growing at least four marijuana plants in his home.

Around 8:45 p.m., Investigators Edwin Rivera and Sgt. Mark Storey with the sheriff’s office’s Crime Suppression Unit searched the home of Michael Anthony Grund, 18, on the 1300-block of Old Highway 85. According to Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office, the investigators determined that Grund was growing marijuana in his home.

Inside, investigators found the marijuana plants growing in Grund’s closet and bedroom, Yarbrough said. The plants were all inside plastic containers which were equipped with lights, fans, timers and digital temperature and humidity gauges. Investigators also found seeds, drying plants and other cultivating items, and it was all seized as evidence.

Grund was charged with the manufacturing, distribution and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and he was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
