Two Georgia women were arrested for selling marijuana edibles at a local church event.
The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team said that at the church event, undercover agents made contact Ebony Cooper, 28, of Savannah who was openly selling the edibles in along with other items. The agents made a purchase of the edibles and maintained surveillance of Cooper.
The agents followed Cooper and Leah Pressley, 26, of Savannah to an off-site location where agents searched Pressley’s vehicle which resulted in the seizure of large amounts of edibles and more than $1,000 in cash. Agents also confiscated a loaded firearm, which agents believed Cooper had in her possession while selling the items on church property.
Both Cooper and Pressley were charged with felony drug charges and remain in the Chatham County Detention Center. Agents do not believe Pressley participated in the edible sales that occurred on the church property.
The agents determined Cooper was actively advertising her edibles on various social media sites. In addition, Cooper was displaying the edibles on her table at the event. The edibles included a mixture of various types of cereal treats, brownies, and puddings.
The church event was held for local entrepreneurs from the area.
