Some 16 marijuana plants were discovered at the White residence on 812 Welcome Road. 


A couple was arrested Tuesday after marijuana plants were found growing in their home.

According to Lt. Col. James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were initially searching for Max Wood and had a warrant for his arrest for violation of probation.

His location was traced to 812 Welcome Road, where Megan Nicole White and Nickalus Richard White lived.

When deputies made contact, they found Wood and 16 marijuana plants that were growing in the Whites’ home, Yarbrough said. 

Megan and Nickalus White were arrested along with Wood and were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
