Something doesn’t smell right


 

When a Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputy investigated an assault complaint last week, on Huron Drive in Winfield Township, he caught a whiff of something in the air from next door.

According to police, the deputy was trying to locate a witness to an assault when he smelled the overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from a neighbor’s residence.  When the deputy went to the residence and questioned the neighbor, a 42-year-old man, the suspect told the deputy that he was a medical marijuana cardholder. Upon further questioning, the suspect admitted that he had an indoor grow operation and was a little over on his 12 plants. He said he had about 30 plants.

The Central Michigan Enforcement Team was contacted, and their investigation showed that the man had 140 plants—nearly 10 times the number allowed. He was also in possession of loose marijuana over 2.5 ounces, and a large amount of marijuana grow equipment.

The investigation was turned over to CMET, and an arrest had not yet been made.
