Teens Apprehended With Large Amount Of Marijuana

   Two local teens are facing drug charges after they were found to be in possession of a large amount of marijuana.

   A press release issued through the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department Monday indicates the 1997 Chevrolet Blazer was stopped after agents with the department’s Crime Suppression Unit and the Loretto Police Department noticed the occupants were not wearing seat belts.

   Noting the odor of marijuana, agents obtained permission to conduct a search. They report finding approximately ½ pound of marijuana concealed inside a false compartment in the passenger door.

Also seized were sandwich bags and a marijuana grinder. In addition, agents report one of the men had one ounce of the drug on his person.

   The suspects, Gregory Ross Springer, 19, of 3570 Highway 43 South, Loretto, and Brennan Meyer, 19, of 304 Jackie Drive, Lawrenceburg, were detained at that time.

   A search was subsequently conducted at Springer’s home. There, agents report seizing another ½ pound of marijuana along with two sets of digital scales, two bags of marijuana seeds, and $362 in cash.

   No charges were placed against the teens at that time, however agents report evidence will be presented to the Lawrence County Grand Jury.
