El Paso County deputies seize 175 illegal marijuana plants from home

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office found more than 175 illegal marijuana plants on a property just east of Colorado Springs Wednesday.

Deputies searched the home on South Blaney Road after learning about a possible illegal marijuana grow operation. In addition to the plants, they found 12 guns and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Deputies said several of the plants were growing outdoors and unsecured.

El Paso County residents are allowed to grow up to 12 plants each, according to the sheriff’s office. Only half of them may be mature, flowering plants. They must be grown in an enclosed and locked space.

Deputies said criminal charges are pending.
