A Middle Tennessee woman told investigators there was “maybe an ounce” of marijuana on her farm before officers found dozens of pot plants and 20 pounds of the drug.
The 15th Judicial Drug Task Force identified the woman as Peggy Brewington. Authorities say Brewington was arrested on a trespassing charge Monday, closing out a month-long investigation.
A search was conducted at the Brewington residence and farm. Officers ask Ms. Brewington how much marijuana was in the residence? She responded “maybe about an Ounce”. Officers recovered over 20 pounds of marijuana from the residence and approximately 40 marijuana plants from the property. A second search was conducted at a nearby residence and more growing marijuana and processed marijuana was recovered. All drug cases will be presented to the Jackson County Grand Jury. Agencies assisting with the search were the TBI and THP Eradication Task Force.
