Brothers Jailed in Pot Bust

Twin brothers are in the Bay County Jail after area lawmen seized 30 pounds of marijuana from their beach home.

Burnell Harold Richey and Burdon Donald Richey of 117 North San Souci Blvd. were arrested Thursday night following a four-month investigation.

The twins were stopped by officers as they left their home and a small amount of pot was found in their car.

Later, authorities obtained a search warrant for their home and found the 30 pounds.

Bay County Sheriff’s Deputies, Federal DEA agents, investigators from the State Attorney’s Office and Panama City and Lynn Haven Police Departments have been taking part in the four-month probe.
