Two men and a woman were arrested on felony marijuana possession charges after search warrants were executed at two Columbus homes, police said.

Columbus Police Capt. Gil Slouchick, who heads the Special Operations Unit, said agents found what was described as a marijuana growing operation late Saturday at 3914 Woodlawn Ave. where officers seized 54 marijuana plants. Daniel Roy, 53, was charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug-related objects. Roy was still being held Tuesday in the Muscogee County Jail on bonds totaling $61,000.

In addition to the plants, Slouchick said agents found almost 12 ounces of processed marijuana valued at $3,300. The plants were valued at $108,000.

During a second search at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Slouchick said agents seized 7 pounds of marijuana at 1337 Cloverdale Road.

Agents arrested Serrita Chaney, 29, and Darnell Parker, 37.

Chaney was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug-related objects and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Her bond was set at $20,500.
