Holmes County Arrest

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's office has been notified of the arrest of a Holmes County elected official.

Acting on a tip to several dog-poisoning cases, Holmes County investigators allegedly found drugs at Rodney Martin's Westville home.

He was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and now state officials are involved.

The remains of alligators and several other endangered species were also reportedly found on Martin's property.

The 36-year-old defendant and his wife, Angel Martin, are Westville City Council members.

Fellow council member Patty Bowden-Smith, says the whole thing is a shock to her hometown.

At this time, Martin has been released from the Holmes County Jail under a $13,500 bond.
