Drug agents arrest 2 men, find pot plants

Two Wagener men were arrested on drug charges this week after police flying over their property spotted marijuana growing.

Local narcotics investigators and SLED conducted a routine marijuana eradication flyover of the Wagener, Salley and Perry area Monday.

During the inspection, investigators saw what they determined to be about 135 marijuana plants growing at 7323 Wagener Road, according to a news release from the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.

Police also found a large quantity of marijuana seeds and other evidence, and two men who lived at the address - Timothy Leon Woodby, 52, and Roger Dale Woodby, 63 - were charged with trafficking marijuana over 100 plants.
