A Coffee County man wanted for failing to appear in court on misdemeanor charges faces felony drug manufacturing charges after deputies discovered a small marijuana growing operation at his home.
Coffee County deputies attempted to serve bench warrants on 30-year-old Charles Sears Roberts III shortly after midnight, May 18, at a residence on Jasmine Drive. Roberts had failed to appear in court earlier this year after being cited for a seatbelt violation and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
An individual at the residence told deputies that Roberts was not at home, but granted officials permission to search the residence. While conducting the search, deputies uncovered a small marijuana growing operation, consisting of five plants, inside a closet. The individual at the home denied any knowledge of the plants.
Agents with the Douglas–Coffee Drug Unit were contacted and Roberts arrived at the scene while the investigation was being conducted. He was placed under arrest at the scene for the outstanding bench warrants and transported to the Coffee County Jail. Drug agents have additionally charged Roberts with one count of manufacturing marijuana.
