One person is under arrest and at least 50 pounds of marijuana is seized from a home in Athens County, Ohio. On Tuesday, deputies executed a search warrant in the 18 thousand block of Lafollette Road in Millfield.

Inside the home they found at least $200,000 worth of marijuana. Athens County sheriff's deputies arrested and charged Donald Cribbet, 44 of Stewart, Ohio  at the Lafollette Road residence.

Investigators believe Gribett was operating a grow house at the home on Lafollette road. The rooms on the top floor of the home were being used for processing the marijuana. And the basement was being used to cultivate the drugs. Additionally, deputies say they found evidence of previous distribution inside the home.

Athens deputies also say they recently seized drugs from a similar operation in Morgan county. They are still trying to determine if the two are connected.
