Scott County Sheriff’s Deputies received a tip of dealing and manufacturing marijuana in the Austin area.

It was also learned that the suspect was allegedly selling candy laced with marijuana, also known as marijuana edibles.

These edibles are commonly known on the street to be used to entice children.

On January 28, 2019, a visit to a residence located at the 204 Water’s Edge Apartment Complex by deputies Joe Baker and Rex Herald resulted in nearly four pounds of marijuana and alleged marijuana edible candies, being located.

Austin Noble, 19, from the above mentioned address, was arrested on the charge of Possession of Marijuana, A Misdemeanor, and incarcerated at the Scott County Jail.

This case is continuing with possible further charges after the case is reviewed by the Scott County Prosecutor’s Office.
