Over a half pound of high-grade marijuana was seized last week after sheriff's deputies executed a warrant to search a mobile home in the Hopewell community, resulting in four felony drug arrests.
Charged with possession of over an ounce of marijuana with intent to distribute were:
Lee Haynes, 57, of 10790 Road 610.
James Peebles, 55, of 10883 Road 553.
Charles Junior Burnside, 37, of 417 Coleman St.
Unden Hardy, 36, of 414 Crockett Ave.
Sheriff Tommy Waddell said his office received information that marijuana was being sold from Peebles' mobile home on Road 553.
"We obtained a search warrant and when we approached the yard we could smell marijuana coming from the house," Waddell said. "Three of them were sitting in a small dining room area when Peebles came to the door."
Investigator Grant Myers said the marijuana had a street value of about $700.
Bonds for the men were set at $15,000 each.
