WARD, AR – The Lonoke Sheriff’s Office seized 45 marijuana plants Monday and Tuesday in Ward.
The sheriff’s office says deputies first found 19 of the plants growing in pots in a wooded area by Covington Road. In those woods they found a trail leading to a home on 146 JJ Lane.
The following day the deputies came back to the home with a search warrant and, according to the sheriff’s office, found 26 plants growing inside, paraphernalia for growing marijuana, other related paraphernalia, and what deputies estimated to be 2 ounces of marijuana.
No one was home when the search warrant was executed. The owner of the home has been identified and an arrest warrant is pending.
