Complaint: Woodbury Police Find 10 Ounces of Marijuana While Executing Search Warrant

A man faces a felony charge following the arrest earlier this month.

A tip from a neighbor about drug activity in Woodbury led police to more than 10 ounces of marijuana and $2,410 in cash.

Jermaine Loius Avil Scott, 25, has been charged with a felony count of selling drugs in connection with a Jan. 5 search warrant executed at the 2500 block of Cornelia Trail in Woodbury.

Woodbury police were tipped about possible drug deals at the residence, and when officers arrived they smelled a strong odor of marijuana, according to the criminal complaint.

Under a mattress upstairs—where Scott was found—police found six bags of marijuana, and more bags containing the drug were discovered in a kitchen drawer, along with a scale and $2,410 in cash, the complaint says. Marijuana residue was also found in the toilet.

In all, officers found more 10 ounces of the drug, according to the complaint.

Before the getting the tip, police had conducted a “trash pull” from the residence and found a bag that appeared contain marijuana.

If convicted, Scott faces up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
