A 51-year-old Ketchikan man faces possible charges of third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance for an alleged marijuana-grow operation.
According to the Alaska State Troopers online dispatch, troopers initially went to the residence for a domestic violence investigation, and noticed evidence of a pot grow-op. A search warrant was obtained, and troopers seized 38 plants and about 4 ounces of dried marijuana.
That exceeds the amount allowed for personal use under Alaska law.
According to troopers, criminal charges were forwarded to the Ketchikan District Attorney’s office for review.
