SCF Tip: Don't grow pot on sheriff's property ...
OCALA, Fla. — Authorities say a 17-year-old boy was growing marijuana on vacant property owned by Ocala's deputy police chief.
Deputy Chief Greg Graham says he was told about the plants by neighbors on Saturday. He had bought the lot two months ago as an investment.
Deputies with the Martin County Sheriff's Office confiscated nine potted marijuana plants on the lot.
According to a sheriff's report, a neighbor saw the teen in the wooded lot on Friday. The neighbor said the teen's presence on the lot seemed suspicious.
According to the report, the teen admitted to investigators that the plants were his and that he smokes marijuana. He also had pictures of the marijuana plants on his camera cell phone.
The teen was charged with cultivation of marijuana and taken to the county's Juvenile Assessment Center.
