Deputies find pot plants during domestic dispute call

DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) - The Darlington County deputies responding to a domestic dispute found something they weren't expecting - a large indoor marijuana grow.

The sheriff's office said someone reported the domestic situation around 9:45 p.m. Monday on Oak Bend Drive in the Hartsville area. The 911 call indicated a woman ran to her neighbor's house after her husband assaulted her and threatened her with a gun.

Deputies searched the home for the alleged assailant to find two small children and a "large amount of equipment used to grow marijuana," the sheriff's office reported.

There were 10 to 12 marijuana plants inside the house. Jermain Jackson, 37, fled from the house with the gun, so bloodhound units were called to search for him in the wooded area behind the house. The trail led to an area where police believe he got into a car.

Jackson's wife, 38-year-old Linda Jackson, was arrested for manufacturing marijuana. The Department of Social Services was also called for the children.

Jermain Jackson is still on the run. If you have any information about his Jackson, call law enforcement.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
