Georgia Women Face Felony Charges For Selling Edibles At Church Bake Sale

Ebony Cooper, 28, and Leah Pressley, 26, were arrested last week for selling the marijuana products on the Savannah church property.

According to a Facebook post by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team, undercover agents purchased several edibles from Cooper, who had them displayed openly on a booth table. Seized items included marijuana-laced cereal treats, brownies and pudding.

Police continued to monitor Cooper after the sale, and followed her to an off-site location where she met with Pressley. Authorities then made contact with the women, and upon searching Pressley’s vehicle, found “a large amount of edibles” and over $1,000 in cash.

Authorities also found a loaded gun that they believe Cooper had in her possession while selling the edibles on church property.

Cooper was advertising her desserts on social media during the event.

The event was hosted by an outside vendor, and the church had no knowledge of the illegal activities that were happening on-site. All the other vendors were operating lawfully, the CNT team wrote.

Both women were arrested and face felony drug charges. They were being held in the Chatham County Detention Center.
