Two women were arrested last week on drug charges after one of the suspects reportedly sold marijuana edibles at a Savannah, Georgia church event.

Ebony Cooper, 28, was openly selling various edibles, which included cereal, brownies, and pudding, that was made with marijuana at a church event intended for entrepreneurs, according to Chatham-Savana Counter Narcotics Team.

Authorities said she advertised the illegal baked goods on social media before the event was held.

Undercover officers purchased several items from Cooper then followed her to Leah Pressley’s vehicle, which they raided.

The search ultimately led to the discovery of a large amount of marijuana edibles, over $1,000 in cash, and a loaded firearm.

Both Cooper and Pressley were taken into custody and were booked into the Chatham County Detention Center on felony drug charges.
