Officials team up to search for drugs by air
20-year-old Amber Danielle Conner and 21-year-old Donnell Kitchens are behind bars after Sumter officials say they were growing marijuana on Pennington Road.
Conner and Kitchens were arrested after the Sumter County Sheriff TMs Office, National Guard, Georgia State Patrol and the Governor TMs Task Force for Drug Suppression led a search by air for the drugs.
Officials say they seized the plants that have a street value of around $8,000 dollars.
Both Kitchens and Conner are charged with manufacturing marijuana and are currently being held at the Sumter County Jail.
