Woman claims to have ‘maybe an ounce’ of weed, authorities find 20 lbs.
JACKSON COUNTY, Tenn. (Gray News) – A woman in Tennessee told officers there was “maybe an ounce” of marijuana on her farm, but it turns out she may have downplayed the amount just a bit.
According to the 15th Drug Task Force of Tennessee, investigators recovered over 20 pounds of marijuana and 40 plants from the property.
Authorities said they searched a residence nearby and recovered more growing and processed marijuana.
The woman, who is referred to as Ms. Brewington on social media, was arrested as the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office closed out a monthlong investigation.
The 15th Drug Task Force of Tennessee posted her mugshot on Facebook and added smiley faces over the gesture she made.
The internet has mixed reactions to the mugshot, some saying she has no respect for authorities while others are calling her a hero.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Tennessee Highway Patrol Eradication Task Force assisted with the search.
The drug task force said all drug cases will be presented to the Jackson County Grand Jury.
