Search nets 5 pounds of pot, four arrests

Yukon police seized more than five pounds of suspected marijuana and arrested four people after serving a search warrant early Friday.

According to a news release from the Yukon Police Department, officers served a search warrant around 6:05 a.m. Friday at 909 Cedar Ave.

The search warrant was the result of an investigation that began several weeks earlier.

During Friday’s search, police found about 5.2 pounds of marijuana, digital scales, packaging materials and drug paraphernalia.

Officers arrested Robert Wayne Smith, 51; his son, Zachary Smith, 22, who both live at the home.

Also arrested were Jimmy Cody, 58, and Denise Chapman, 54, both of Yukon. Authorities say they were inside the house when the search warrant was served.

The Smiths were arrested on complaints of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They remained in jail late Friday afternoon.

Cody and Chapman were arrested on complaints of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were released Friday without posting bond.

    When are they going to stop prosecuting families that are using a natural product that is legal in many states? It is a waste of our tax dollars to keep pursuing drug users and imprisoning them.

    Hey, thanks so much for keeping dangerous drugs off the str… wait, it was weed? And you’re destroying lives over this plant?

    The majority of the people want to see cannabis legalized, and our legislators and officials are doing everything they can to block it, including illegally neglecting their duties. Maybe arrest THEM for breaking the law, instead?
