Police found not only a large amount of edibles, but money and a loaded gun, which they think were with them at the church. The ladies are now facing felony drug charges and are currently in jail. CNT agents believe that Cooper was advertising the baked good on social media pages. CNT Assistant Deputy Director Gene Harley said, “We would simply say in this particular investigation is that this is still an active investigation and additional charges are possible as well as additional arrests are possible as this investigation furthers.”
Member of the church, Detric Legget said, “We had no idea what was going on here. Why would something like this go on and you have God’s House involved. This church and this organization and this community does not condone this type of behavior and for something like this to happen, it shows lack of faith in how people feel about God.”
