A Dawson County 9-1-1 dispatcher was set to turn herself in to local authorities Tuesday in connection with allegedly growing marijuana at her home with her husband.

Sara Lynn Reeves will be charged with manufacturing marijuana and possession of a controlled substance, according to Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle.

Her husband, Phillip Johnathan Reeves, was arrested Friday following an undercover buy bust conducted by the sheriff's drug unit.

Phillip Reeves, 30, of Dawsonville is charged with possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing marijuana, obstruction of officer and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

"A search warrant was obtained for his residence where marijuana was found growing in the residence," Carlisle said.

Investigators located two plants growing inside the home.

Sara Reeves, who had worked at the 9-1-1 center at the Dawson County jail since June 2015, was terminated on Monday.

Carlisle said a deal was made for her to surrender for arrest Tuesday in order for her to make arrangements for her children to be attended to while she was incarcerated.
