Albany police arrest a Knox man after discovering a marijuana growing operation.

Sheriff Craig Apple says deputies stumbled upon the operation when responding to a call to assist EMS at 620 Knox Cave Road. Once on scene police observed several marijuana plants growing in pots inside and outside of the residence. A search warrant later identified the individual growing the marijuana as 36-year-old Jason P. Matthews. 

Investigators located and seized thirty four marijuana plants and approximately one and half pounds of loose marijuana, as well as items used in the growing and selling of marijuana such as lamps and scales.

Matthews was charged with Criminal Possession of Marjihuana and Unlawful Growing of Cannabis.
