Two Georgia women were on Friday arrested after officials caught one of them selling marijuana edibles at a local church event.
The women, Ebony Cooper, 28, and 26-year-old Leah Pressley were arrested at a church in Savannah, Georgia, during an event for entrepreneurs, with vendors selling various items from booths, the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team said in a Monday statement.
Ebony Cooper who was one of the vendors “was openly selling the edibles in addition to other items,” the CNT said, noting the items included marijuana-infused “cereal treats, brownies, and puddings.”
When Officials then searched Pressley’s car they found “a large amount of edibles and more than $1,000 in cash,” the CNT said, adding a firearm, “which agents believed Cooper had in her possession while selling the items on church property,” was also seized.
The duo were booked on felony drug charges and taken to the Chatham County Detention Center.
