A short time later patrol deputies located an unoccupied vehicle parked alongside Indian Springs Rd. that contained a large amount of freshly cut marijuana.

At about 2:00 AM detectives assigned to the Narcotics Task Force were called out to conduct further investigation. Detectives located a male subject dressed in a gilley suit camouflage outfit on Indian Springs Rd. Detectives contacted the male identified as Eric Roland Meyer, age 43 and determined he was involved in the theft of marijuana. Further investigation led detectives to an address on Broken Oaks Ct. where Jesse Allen Eaton, age 33 was contacted and found to be involved in the theft of marijuana. Eaton and Meyer were both arrested for grand theft and conspiracy and booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
The stolen marijuana was recovered and returned to the victim."
