SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Two people have been arrested for allegedly selling marijuana products during an event at a Georgia church.

The Savannah Morning News reports the arrests were made Friday during an event in which entrepreneurs were invited to set up booths and sell various items.

Police said all the booths appeared to be operating legally — except one. Undercover narcotics agents form a Chatham County and Savannah law enforcement team bought edible marijuana products they said were being openly sold at one booth. They followed the seller to another location and ended up arresting her and another woman on felony drug charges. The newspaper reported both remained in jail Monday.

Police said that an outside vendor hosted the event on church grounds and church officials were unaware of the illegal activity.
