HARRIS TOWNSHIP - More than 150 marijuana plants were seized by law enforcement while executing a search warrant on a residence in Harris Township, according to Menominee County Sheriff's Department.
After receiving a confidential tip on July 4, deputies and the county's K9 unit conducted a consent search of the suspect home and confiscated 162 pot plants, according to a press release from the sheriff's department.
The grow operation was not in compliance with the provisions of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act of 2008, which allows patients and caregivers to grow a specific amount of pot plants for specific medical conditions.
Deputies are seeking arrest warrants in connection with last week's pot bust, the press release said.
Names are being withheld pending authorization of charges.
Sheriff Kenny Marks commented that individuals convicted of violating the medical marijuana law will be held accountable and face consequences.
Anyone with information about illegal drugs is asked to contact the Marinette Crime Stoppers at 1-800-427-5857 or the sheriff's department at (906) 863-4441 or email menomineecounty.com.
