Local Pot Operation Busted

The Bay County Sheriff's Office ended a year-long investigation Thursday with the arrest of two people and the seizure of 60 pounds of marijuana.

Deputies arrested Linh My and Johnny Nguyen after serving a search warrant on a house at 539 School Avenue in Springfield in the early morning hours.

Inside they found 60 pounds of Marijuana divided into one pound bags, $9,000 cash and a semi-automatic hand gun.

The Sheriff's Office says this may be tied to a larger ring.
