Police have seized about a million dollars worth of marijuana and a moonshine still from a Greenbrier County farm, allegedly operated by a 75-year-old retired coal miner and his 44-year-old wife.

Authorities confiscated 468 marijuana plants and nearly 400 grams of bagged marijuana from the 29-acre property owned by James Robert Webb and Sheila Mae Webb.

They also found Mason jars filled with clear liquid.

They have been charged with cultivating marijuana and possession with intent to deliver.

Sheila Webb told police she grew the marijuana for personal use and sometimes gave it to friends as gifts.

Police also recovered $1,100 in cash, guns and ammunition, three ATVs and drug paraphernalia.

Police discovered the pot crop during a flyover.
