Deputy Harper, who was assisted by Sgt. Jeff Brewer, proceeded with the investigation in the Trammel Creek Community, and upon arriving at the designated area, near a cornfield at 6:00 p.m. they immediately began confiscating the plants, according to the deputy. The officers returned to the Sheriffs Department around 7:30 p.m. and as of press time the property owner’s name had not been released. Later that night the plants were destroyed in a field near the Justice Center.
“I would like to thank the concerned citizens of Macon County who led us to this area,” said Sgt. Brewer, “and I would also like to congratulate Deputy Harper for a job well done. This is an on-going investigation, and it is a substantial find in the war on drugs here in Macon County.”
