NASHVILLE , BARRY CO. - A pair of Michigan State Police troopers looking for a fugitive, come across over 100 marijuana plants at a home in eastern Barry County. Troopers Nate Horan and Drew Spencer went to a home on Gregg's Corner, outside of Nashville Tuesday morning.They did not find the fugitive they were looking for, but they did notice a strong smell of marijuana coming from the residence. They also saw several marijuana cuttings growing by the window.
One of the residents gave consent for the troopers to come inside, where they discovered a marijuana growing operation and 101 mature plants.
While the troopers were confiscating the plants, another resident, who had a marijuana caregiver card, arrived and took responsibility for the plants. Under Michigan's guidelines, the most plants a caregiver can legally have is 60. No one was arrested immediately. The case has been forwarded to the Barry County prosecutor's office for possible charges.
The fugitive was not located at the residents. State Police say that they discovered this was a prior residence, and the man they were looking for does not live there any more.
