In what Holly Springs police are calling the town's largest marijuana seizure, police recovered 15 pounds of the drug in a downtown house today.
A suspect inside the house was taken into custody and was being questioned this afternoon at police headquarters, according to police.
The drug raid occurred at 401 Raleigh St., a single family house that is less than two blocks from Town Hall. Officers also confiscated $3,900 from a safe inside the home.
The marijuana was packaged in bags, most of which were in boxes in a bedroom, said Capt. Mike Bornes. Investigators valued the marijuana at more than $68,000.
