Police find drug operation, not missing dog in search

A simple search for a missing dog Friday uncovered an elaborate indoor marijuana-growing operation.

Officials with the Colbert County Drug Task Force and Sheffield Police discovered the operation inside a residence in the River Oaks subdivision.

100 plants that were 2 to 3 feet tall, along with a large amount of potting soil fertilizer and growing lights, were found inside the home.

Authorities said they also found $5,400 in cash, a shotgun, and various drug paraphernalia throughout the house.

Vincent Key, 45, and his girfriend, Ramona Martin, 46, were taken into custody and face charges of trafficking marijuana.

Both were transported to the Sheffield City Jail.
