More than 100 pounds of marijuana are off the streets after what Whitehall police call a large scale distribution bust.
William Barnes III, 43, was arrested Wednesday. Police say he’s suspected of selling a large amount of marijuana across east Columbus and Whitehall.
The Whitehall drug enforcement unit served warrants at Barnes’ home on Edgevale Road in east Columbus, and another property on Ravenel Drive. Investigators say during those searches they found 112 pounds of marijuana, more than $64,000 in cash, and a handgun.
Right now, Barnes is only charged with one felony count of possession of drugs, but police say the investigation is ongoing.
