DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - A drug task force in Destin say a man was growing over 40 mature high-grade marijuana plants in his home.
Authorities arrested 57-year-old George Ward after they served him with a search warrant.
Investigators say they found an entire room devoted to an indoor growing operation. The room even had artificial lighting, and aluminum foil was used as wallpaper to line the walls.
Authorities say they confiscated a street value of almost $43,000 in marijuana plants.
Ward is charged with cultivation of marijuana and other offenses.
