Three people were arrested this afternoon after police say marijuana and weapons were confiscated at two Columbia County homes.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation searched the Grovetown home of Henry Morris, 39, at the 800 block of Morris Road, and the Martinez residence of Mr. Morris’ girlfriend, Tammy Thornal, 38, of the 100 block of Highview Drive, said sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris. Ms. Thornal’s daughter, Macy Thornal, 17, also lives at the Martinez home and was arrested, Capt. Morris said.

Capt. Morris said 14 “large” marijuana plants and six guns were seized from Mr. Morris’ home, while two guns and a bag containing less than one ounce of marijuana was taken from the Thornal residence.

Mr. Morris is charged with manufacturing marijuana and misdemeanor possession of marijuana, Capt. Morris said, adding that weapons charges might also be forthcoming.

Tammy Thornal is charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and her daughter, Macy Thornal, is charged with manufacturing marijuana.
