WINDER -- On the hunt for controlled substances, agents from the Barrow County Sheriff's Office found a marijuana distribution operation, and two suspects trying to flee through a window.
A search warrant for an address on East Midland Avenue in Winder on Friday helped agents find 10 pounds of marijuana, with an estimated street value of $20,000, about $3,000 in cash along with a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver.
Officers arrested Charles McDaid, 55, and Darrell Jackson, 29, who lived at the house, and Statham resident Mario Peters, 22.
Lt. Matt Guthas of the Barrow County Sheriff's Office said investigators received a tip that drugs were being sold at the residence, which led SWAT team members to arrive at the house about 9 p.m.
When SWAT members arrived, Guthas said Peters and Jackson jumped through a glass window and attempted to flee, but were caught immediately.
All three are charged with felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and theft by receiving. McDaid and Jackson were also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. And Jackson and Peters were charged with obstruction of an officer.
Guthas also said the revolver was stolen in Walton County.
