Bust Made in Alleged Marijuana Ring

Eleven people, including two from Meridian and Newton, are facing charges in what authorities are calling one of the biggest marijuana rings in Mississippi.

36-year-old Jesse Jerome Hall of Newton and 40-year-old Charlie Earl Powell of Meridian are both charged in the case, along with men from Scott County, Jackson, and Texas.

They're accused of trying to distribute more than a thousand kilograms, or 220 pounds, of marijuana.
