DEPUTIES: Married Couple Arrested In Marijuana Bust

Deputies said a surveillance operation ended with two arrests and the seizure of 641 grams of marijuana.

Beaufort County deputies said they had reason to believe there were large quantities of pot in a Washington home, so they initiated a traffic stop after Dangela Willard left that home.

Investigators said with the help of a drug dog, they found 91 grams of marijuana that had been packaged for individual sale.

Deputies said once they searched the home where Willard came from in the first place, they found 550 grams of marijuana, and digital scales along with packaging material at the home.

Deputies said the next stop was 7508 Slatestone Road, where Dangela's husband, Edward, lives.

Deputies say at the Willard residence, they found more marijuana, glass smoking pipes, 4 firearms and nearly $8,000 in cash.

The couple was arrested on drug charges.

Dangela is in jail under a $10,000 secured bond while her husband was given a $15,000 bond.
