The ATF raid at Jeffrey Greaves’ Macon Road home in Saline Township March 19 netted 11 pounds of marijuana, 24 marijuana plants, 383 firearms, two NFA Weapons, and other materials, according to federal court documents.
Greaves is charged with possession with the intent to distribute controlled substances, possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and possession of unregistered NFA weapons. Greaves was freed on an unsecured bond of $10,000 April 9. As Greaves’ attorney and federal government lawyers are engaged in plea negotiations the preliminary examination was pushed back to May 28.
According to an affidavit by Special Agent Cheryl K. Crockett, an investigation of Greaves, 55, began in February when she received a call from someone alleging Greaves was growing marijuana at his home, where he’s licensed to sell weapons as Sauk Trail LLC. The agent learned Greaves had begun but not completed the process to obtain a caregiver’s marijuana license, according to the affidavit.
On March 13, ATF agents purchased a pound of suspected marijuana from Greaves for $3,000, according to court records. According to the affidavit, Greaves placed a shotgun and rifle in his vehicle before the transaction and advised an informant to be armed for the transaction. During the transaction, Greaves refused to accept cash from an undercover agent, and instead directed the agent to pay the informant, who was also present, according to the documents.
A search warrant was issued March 18 and executed March 19.
