The Todd County Sheriff’s Department was contacted regarding 20-year old Cody Shane Morgan saying that his television had been reported stolen at a Greenville Road home.
While taking the report, Deputy Kevin Saunders noticed a strong odor of marijuana and Morgan showed him six plants he was growing in the residence, according to the arrest citation. There were also several jars containing marijuana and a large amount of cash in the home.
There was also a 16-year old female in the home who identified herself as Morgan’s girlfriend and they both admitted to smoking marijuana together, according to police.
