Two Georgia women were arrested last week after officials found one of them with the sale of marijuana edibles at a local church event, the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team said in a Monday statement.

On Friday, a local church was hosting an event for entrepreneurs, with vendors selling the various items of the stands. One of the vendors was Ebony Cooper, 28, of Savannah, who “was openly the sale of the foods in addition to other items,” the ICC said, pointing to the items included marijuana-infused “cereal treats, brownies, pudding.”

“Agents made a purchase of a number of edible plants and maintained the supervision of Cooper,” the statement continues. At that point, CNT agents followed Cooper and another woman, 26 years old, Lea Pressley, also of Savannah, on an off-site location” for approaching the two women.

Officials then searched Pressley the car, where they “a large amount of food and more than $1,000 in cash,” the CONGRESS said, adding a firearm, “which agents believed Cooper had in her possession, while the sale of the items on the church property,” was also seized.

Cooper and Pressley were booked on felony drug possession and to the Chatham County Detention Center. Agents “do not believe Pressley participated in the cep sales that have taken place on the church property.”

In addition, the sale of the food at the event, CNT officials said Cooper, “active advertising her eatables on the various social media sites.”

Officials said that the event was organized by an external supplier, and “the church was not aware of the illegal activities on his property.”
