Entry Description

Jennings County: This morning an anonymous tip led to the discovery and seizure of numerous marijuana plants. According to Trooper Matt Powell, at approximately 11:45 this morning troopers and Jennings County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 4465N C.R. 300 West in Jennings County based on an anonymous tip and discovered 99 marijuana plants growing behind the building at that location. The building is an old school house where 42 year old Scott Smith of North Vernon operates a taxidermy business. The plants were photographed, seized, and destroyed. No arrests were made today, however criminal charges are pending.

Indiana State Police follow up on all tips whether the caller identifies themselves or wishes to remain anonymous. As the summer months begin to draw to a close and fall begins, the harvest season also begins. Anyone with information regarding illegal marijuana growing operations or any other illegal activity is urged to contact the Indiana State Police. As was the case in this incident, callers can remain anonymous.
