Grayland Man Arrested After Marijuana Grow Operation Found

GRAYLAND, Wash. – A 57-year-old Grayland man was taken into custody Friday morning after Pacific County Sheriff’s deputies discovered more than $30,000 worth of marijuana and a growing operation while serving an unrelated warrant.
Sheriff Scott Johnson tells us Deputies confiscated about eight pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, tens of thousands of dollars in cash, and two vehicles, one of wich was a 2013 Chevrolet Corvette with 108 miles on the odometer, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies believe that a special edition SUV, was purchased with cash as well, but was not at the residence at the time the warrant was served.
Johnson said he “didin’t know very many people that are unemployed that have two newer high-end cars and that much cash laying around. The person we arrested with no teeth, Johnson overheard the suspect tell a Corrections Officer he couldn’t afford dentures…he obviously had no idea that investigators had found his cash at that point”.
“Besides the seizure of the vehicles, it is likely that a full seizure of the residence will occur as well”, he said.
The 57 year old Grayland man was arrested for violation of an anti-harassment order. He was booked into the Pacific County Jail in South Bend. It is anticipated that additional charges, and forfeiture orders will be filed by the Pacific County Prosecutor’s Office the first of next week.
