Drug Bust in Wayne County

Hundreds of pounds of marijuana are off the streets after a drug bust in Wayne County.

When the drug squad showed up to a home on Trailwood Drive in Dudley on Friday they seized 175 pounds of pot, with a possible street value of $300,000.

Police nabbed Decarlo Russell leaving the residence at the time. Authorities say he was in possession of the drugs.

If convicted, Russell could face more than three years in prison.
