marijuana growing operation
A search of a rural Leavenworth residence Tuesday uncovered an alleged marijuana growing operation, the sheriff said.

A 34-year-old man was arrested for alleged drug violations. The search began around 5:50 a.m. Tuesday in what Sheriff Dave Zoellner said was the 26900 block of New Lawrence Drive.

He said the Sheriff’s Office tactical unit served a search warrant at the residence.

The 34-year-man, a 30-year-old woman and two children were in the home.
Zoellner said officers seized about 10 ounces of what is believed to be processed marijuana. They also seized about a dozen of what they believe to be mature marijuana plants and about four starter plants.

“And they seized some related paraphernalia,” Zoellner said, such as lights to help plants grown, fertilizer and watering cans.

Thirty-two firearms were seized, seven of which were handguns. The rest were shotguns and rifles. Zoellner said one of the firearms had been reported stolen from Kansas City, Kan.

Authorities also seized about $1,000 in cash.

The 34-year-old man was arrested for allegations of felony possession of marijuana, misdemeanor cultivation of marijuana and felony possession of stolen property, Zoellner said.

The children were released to grandparents. The woman was left at the residence once authorities had completed their search.

Zoellner said the suspected marijuana will be sent to a Kansas Bureau of Investigation lab for analysis.
