TRINITY, AL (WAFF) -

A drug bust in Lawrence County resulted in three arrests, the detention of two juveniles, and the seizure of 71 marijuana plants.

Sheriff Gene Mitchell said a citizen complained about possible drug activity at a residence on County Road 554 in Trinity. When agents went to the home to investigate, they found a marijuana plant sitting on a windowsill.

Agents entered the home and found two men in the living room and two female juveniles in a rear bedroom where the plant was found.

The man living at the home, 20-year-old Austin Glenn Hill, agreed to a further search, and voluntarily showed agents the location of other marijuana plants he had been growing.

Hill was arrested for second-degree possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of prescription drugs and endangering the welfare of a child.

The two men found in the home were also arrested.

Dustin Cole Shelton, 19, was arrested for second-degree possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child. Jeffrey Tyler Dumas, 18, was arrested on possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child.

The two girls were questioned about being at the home. They told agents they had lied about being at Hill's residence. Agents observed items in the residence that indicated alcohol and narcotics had been consumed prior to their arrival.

Sheriff Mitchell said the girls were released to their parents following the incident.
