County authorities investigated an incident in which a man reportedly threatened a man over the theft of marijuana.

Deputies were dispatched to a Longview Road residence at Elk Creek Saturday regarding a report of a man threatening to kill a woman for stealing his marijuana.

The man, 60, told an officer he was mad because the woman, 51, had swiped two pounds of pot he had just harvested. During the investigation, another woman, of unreported age, told officer the man had also threatened her over swiping his pot.

Neither woman wanted to pursue charges, but they said they wanted the man off their property.

The man was advised not to go on either of their properties, and was also cited for possession of marijuana after a plastic bag containing pot was found in his jacket pocket.
