A 48-year-old Crawfordville woman was charged with cultivation of marijuana Friday, May 27 at 12:27 a.m. after Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office investigators discovered plants growing at her home, according to Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey.
Cynthia Lee White was arrested on the drug charge and transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident.
“Deputy Lorne Whaley and Reserve Deputy Timothy Hightower were responding to another complaint at the home when they observed marijuana plants growing in the garden nearby,” said Sheriff Harvey. “They discovered 49 plants growing in three locations at the home.”
Two plants were observed in the garden and more plants were observed growing in two to three gallon containers under the back porch and near a shed. The 49 plants were well cared for and ranged in size from three inches to 18 inches in height. The plants were seized and turned in as evidence. They were valued at $49,000.
