IRWINVILLE -- Investigators with the South Central Drug Task Force, assisted by the Irwin County Sheriff's Office and Fitzgerald Police Department, executed a search warrant Wednesday at 115 Jeff Davis Highway in Irwinville (Irwin County). Investigators found approximately 40 marijuana plants being grown inside and around the residence, as well as approximately a quarter pound of marijuana ready for sale.

Arrested at the residence were Heath Kenneth Register, 24, and Brandy Bussell, 23. A third person who was at the residence at the time was not arrested. Register and Bussell were both charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, manufacturing marijuana and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.

According to the SCDTF, the marijuana plants if allowed to grow to maturity could produce around one pound of marijuana each, with an approximate value of $1,200 per pound. SCDTF Commander John David Anderson said the investigation started as a result of a citizen complaint about suspected drug activity taking place at the residence.
