Authorities said three Hall County men arrested on marijuana charges had more than $25,000 of the illegal drug in their possession.

Agents with the Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad and Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested Ernest Frank Abercrombie, 64, Richard James Mayer Jr. 47, and Jeremy James Pacesky, 33, all charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and felony possession of marijuana.

Abercrombie faces three additional counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Agents searched the suspects’ Richland Circle residence in South Hall County and seized three loaded firearms, three growing marijuana plants, 28 Mason jars containing high-grade marijuana, components for growing marijuana indoors, a truck, an SUV, a boat and cash.

All three suspects are being held without bond at the Hall County Jail.

Abercrombie and Pacesky requested committal hearings at their first court appearance on Friday, to be held Sept. 4 in Hall County Magistrate Court.
