$43,000 seized during drug raid in Marysville

(MARYSVILLE) -- The St. Clair County Drug Task Force and Marysville Police Department have taken more illegal drugs off the streets of St. Clair County. Acting on a tip, officers from Marysville went to a house in the 3300 block of Ravenswood Road where they made contact with the homeowner at about 5:30 p.m. Monday afternoon. When asked if he was growing marijuana, the 36-year old man said he was and stated that he is a medical marijuana caregiver. He gave permission to the officers to check his buildings. During the investigation, it was discovered that the man had a total of 106 plants growing, 13 1/2 pounds of processed marijuana, and a small quantity of suspected psilocybin (sihl-uh-sy'-bin) mushrooms. The drugs, plants and $13,000 in cash were seized. The marijuana had a street value of $43,000. During the course of the investigation, authorities learned that the man had purchased a second home in the 1000 block of Miller Street in Port Huron. St. Clair County Drug Task Force officers assisted in the search of the home and seized a small amount of marijuana and gaming tables. The suspect was released from custody pending results from the MSP Crime Lab on the suspected drugs. Sheriff Tim Donnellon says that the Michigan Medical Marijuana Law states that primary caregivers are allowed to have a total of six patients, including themselves. The caregiver is allowed to possess not more than 2.5 ounces of processed marijuana per patient and not more than 12 plants per patient.
