A grand jury indicted a Decatur man after he allegedly sold hydroponic marijuana to an undercover agent in the Hatton community, Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said today.
Alex Kesly Speake, 31, of 2605 Sherwood Oaks Court was arrested by Drug Task Force agents on the indictment charging him with distribution of a controlled substance.
The sheriff said agents began investigating Speake after receiving complaints from citizens in the community.
Hydroponic marijuana is a potent form of marijuana because the plant is fertilized with vitamins and nutrients during the growing process, and has a higher street price, Mitchell said.
Speake was being held in Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail on the drug charge and without bail on a probation violation from a previous drug conviction, Mitchell said.
