Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly says a growth operation has been dismantled, fifty pounds of marijuana seized and one person has been arrested after the Narcotics Enforcment Team executed a search warrant at 18755 North LaFollette Road in Millfield. Detectives arrested 44-year-old Donald Gribbet at the residence. Authorities consider the residence to be a grow house.
A similar operation was seized recently in Morgan County in the same area. NET detectives are working with Morgan County deputies investigating the connection between the grows. The marijuana seized is estimated at approximately $200,000 minimum.
