A probation check on one individual on the 1800 block of Water Avenue turned into legal troubles for another person Tuesday.
When probation officers came to check on Annette Dunning’s “acquaintance” Tuesday, they discovered Dunning had problems of her own as they found four bags of marijuana and two marijuana plants enjoying sunlight from a nearby window.
According to Sgt. Jeffery Hardy with the Selma Police Department’s narcotics and vice unit, once the marijuana and plants were discovered, a K-9 unit was called in to verify the drugs.
“Each of the bags had roughly one ounce of marijuana in them,” Hardy said. “The value of the plants, because of their size, was placed at about $2,000 each.”
Hardy said there would not be any charges filed against Dunning’s acquaintance, who also lived in the home.
As for Dunning, 54, she was charged with first-degree manufacturing a controlled substance and first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana. Each charge carried a $30,000 bond, for a total of $60,000.
She is currently being held at the Dallas County Jail.
