A woman was booked into Morgan County Jail after marijuana plants were reportedly found in her back yard. Authorities said they were discovered after a report of a fallen tree on power lines behind the residence had been made.

Officials said the Morgan County Drug Task Force went to an address on Bertha Road after a caller reported identifying marijuana plants being grown in pots on the property.

Agents said they found numerous marijuana seeds as well as drug paraphernalia items. Agents arrested Naomi Gillilan who allegedly rented the mobile home. She was charged with first degree unlawful possession of marijuana and transported to the Morgan County Jail.

The investigation is still ongoing.
