According to a KSP report, at about 9:55 p.m., troopers went to 24240 Coal Creek Road on a drug complaint, where they located a three-room marijuana growing operation in a hidden section of the garage. They discovered 38 marijuana plants of various stages of growth along with various growing chemicals, marijuana seeds, how-to-grow literature, a quantity of marijuana, growing equipment items, a shotgun, five rifles, two handguns and $586.

Anthony S.
