Home grown marijuana crop under attack in Delaware County
Free Press Report
MUNCIE, IN - The drought has not impacted growing marijuana in a backyard although the Indiana State Police found and harvested a couple local crops this week.
State troopers served a search warrant Wednesday on a house in the 700 block of West Berkley Avenue and found 31 large marijuana plants as high as eight feet tall there. The man of the house, Robert W. Spears, 35, was initially charged with felony marijuana growing and keeping a common nuisance.
The day before, ISP visited Donald W. Dishmon, 50, at his house in the 6000 block of South Walnut Street and found 75 plants growing. Dishmon, who has felony drug convictions, also was jailed on growing and common nuisance felonies.
Muncie police and Delaware County sheriff officers also participated in the backyard marijuana growing crackdown that has been ongoing this summer. Just look for that low flying single engine plane that hovers over the community and remember that somebody is always watching. Besides that criminal defendants are always innocent until proven guilty.
