A search warrant executed by Task Force Agents last night at 22883 State Route 339, Beverly, resulted in the discovery of approximately twenty-six pounds of marijuana, a semi-automatic handgun and $4,250 in cash. In addition to the large quantity of marijuana, which was hanging and being dried in a barn on the property, Agents confiscated bags of marijuana that appeared to be packaged for sale. Under questioning, the property’s resident, Randy L. Montgomery, age 38, admitted the marijuana found at various locations on his property belonged to him. The estimated street value of the marijuana is $52,000. Montgomery was arrested for third degree felony charges of cultivation of marijuana and being in possession of a weapon while under disability. He is currently being held without bond in the Washington County Jail pending his initial court appearance this afternoon.

Montgomery forced the victim to access the bank’s vault, from which he removed approximately $23,000. Montgomery fled but was later arrested in Germany where he had previously served in the military.
