More and more "Mary Jane" or marijuana is being located throughout Rutherford County. With it being illegal, arrests are also being made on a daily basis. Murfreesboro Police most recently responded to a complaint of possible drug activity at an apartment on Huntington Drive.
When police arrived at the B building at Colony House Apartments, they met with Edward Collins who allowed officers inside his residence. Police soon located two marijuana plants in a rear bedroom. Collins admitted that the plants were in fact his. Digital scales, a bong, a generator, specialty lights and other items were found in the apartment. Many of the items are commonly used to grow weed, according to a police arrest report.
As a result of the find, Collins was arrested and charged with the manufacturing of a schedule six drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for drug related purposes. He will appear in court on May 14, 2015.
