The seized marijuana plants were on display Friday like flowers at a nurserys pre-spring sidewalk sale.
Dozens of them, some sprouting from five-gallon buckets and others from cheap plastic pots, had been confiscated Thursday.
Investigators say the plants -- more than 100 in all with an estimated street value of $210,000 -- belonged to a man who was allegedly growing them in the house where his 80-year-old grandmother lives in west Bibb County.
Scott E. Seymour Jr., 34, was jailed Thursday on drug charges, including marijuana trafficking, Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said.
Seymour also was charged with endangering an elderly person, his grandmother.
His activity could certainly be an endangerment, the sheriff said.
Seymours late grandfather, former Macon vice squad chief Julian E. Seymour Jr., was convicted in 1975 in a federal racketeering case that involved police taking bribes to protect prostitution and gambling operations. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Julian Seymour, until his death at age 64 in 1995, lived at the house where his grandson was arrested.
The Thomaston Road residence sits north of Lake Tobesofkee, beneath a canopy of pecan trees between Lamar Road and the Southfork subdivision.
The deputy who led the bust said that when Scott Seymour realized officers were there to nab him Thursday, Seymour wouldnt say much of nothing.
In the breeze Friday outside the sheriffs office, the county drug squads still-fresh haul was so green and pungent that the stuff even smelled illegal.
Some tomato plants, one officer kidded.
Yall opening up a garden center? another cop asked.
Among the seized items, which included sacks of hydroponic fertilizer and a shotgun, was a book: Indoor Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor Bible.
You can buy all the books that you want to, the sheriff said, but were gonna get em.
