TIFTON, Ga. — The Tift County Sheriff's Office and the Mid-South Narcotics Task Force have seized possible drug storage equipment and $121,000 in cash at a Tifton residence, officials say.
According to Tift County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer David Haire, a May 7 search at 905 36th St. in Tifton netted several large plastic containers in the attic crawl space. The containers are suspected to contain marijuana reside, Haire said.
A resident at the address, Daniel Eubanks, 36, was arrested earlier by drug agents with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office when he attempted to purchase approximately 50 pounds of marijuana from an undercover officer in Lowndes County. According to Haire, Tift deputies and agents with the Mid-South Narcotic Task Force had been conducting surveillance of Eubanks prior to his arrest.
Eubanks has been charged with trafficking in marijuana and use of a communications facility and is currently in the Lowndes County Jail, where he is listed on its website as "not bailable."
