A Jasper County man was arrested Friday on drug charges following seizure of hundreds of marijuana plants discovered at an outdoor grow at a hunting club in Tillman.

Investigators with the Beaufort/Jasper Multi-Agency Drug Task Force and Jasper County Sheriff's Office, along with agents from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources conducted marijuana eradication flights throughout Jasper County Thursday.

A search warrant was executed for the residence of Kermit Wade Donahue, 58, at 42 B & C Landing Rd. in Tillman. Investigators found and seized 47 grams of marijuana, a digital scale, a rifle, and materials that are believe to be used in the cultivation of marijuana. Donahue was arrested at the residence. Authorities also seized 435 marijuana plants that Donahue had been growing on land belonging to the Green Swamp Hunting Club, 11 B & C Landing Rd.

Donahue has been charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and entering another's land for purpose of cultivating marijuana.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charge and arrests may be pending.
