BOWDON, Ga. (AP) _ A burglary at a hair salon has led to charges against the salon's owner after police found more than 200 pounds of marijuana stored there.
Bowdon Police Chief Mark Brock was on routine patrol early Sunday when he came across a burglary in progress at the hair salon.
The suspects, identified as Howard Bernard Crane, 20, and Kareem Lee Evans, 33, were trying to steal the marijuana, which was being kept in a freezer chest at the salon, police said.
The salon's owner _ who is also Howard Crane's sister _ Erica Crane, 33, was also arrested.
West Georgia Drug Task Force Agent Mike Fritz said Howard Crane was trying to steal the drugs from his sister's shop with Evans' help.
The three have been charged with trafficking marijuana.
