CLINTON COUNTY - A substantial marijuana growing operation has been discovered in Clinton County. The sheriff's office reports that on a tip, deputies raided a home in the 7900 block of Francis Road in Riley Township Friday. In the basement they say they discovered an extensive and sophisticated marijuana growing operation using hydroponics, along with heat lamps and other marijuana growing apparatus. In all they seized 230 grams of what the Sheriff described as high quality processed marijuana, as well as 32 mature plants and stripped marijuana leaves.
The sheriff says the grow operation appears to be a family affair. Arrested were Daniel Olger, 49, his wife Lisa Marie Olger, 46, and their 22-year-old son Kiefer. All three are charged with manufacturing marijuana, and being held on $100,000 bond.
