Police Find $100,000 Of Pot At Farmville Home

Police say they have seized $100,000 worth of pot in what they say was a marijuana growing operation.

Farmville police say a tip from a citizen led them to Wright Drive. There they found 47 marijuana plants, the department's biggest bust of a growing operation.

Dustin Coffey is facing felony drug charges. Police say he had been growing the plants for the past three to five months. Inside they found a heater used to keep the plants warm, a grow light, digital scale and two guns.

WITN News found the 21-year-old Coffey out of jail and back at the house Thursday afternoon. He told us no comment and then threatened to call police if we didn't leave.
