Authorities find 139 pot plants in Fairbanks grow house
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say they have found nearly 140 marijuana plants in a commercial grow operation in a home near Fairbanks.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (http://is.gd/sH42Na) it’s the second time the house has been raided. Federal investigators in 2010 turned up 255 pot plants.
The latest bust came after members of the Fairbanks Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit got reports of a heavy marijuana odor from the home at 12 Mile Chena Hot Springs Road.
The street value for the 139 plants and some processed pot was about $64,000.
Troopers say one person at the house was arrested, but online court records didn’t indicate any charges had been filed as of Tuesday afternoon.
