SHEFFIELD — Police said a man, who claimed to be growing marijuana to make money to move to a state where marijuana is legal, is in jail.
Curtis Burns, director of the Colbert County Drug Task Force, said Sean Glover, 31, 509A St. Louis Ave., Sheffield, is charged with first-degree possession of marijuana.
Burns said Glover was arrested after members of the drug task force along with Sheffield police executed a search warrant at this residence and found marijuana plants growing.
Burns said agents had gotten information that Glover had an indoor growing operation.
“Inside the residence, we found 10 marijuana plants growing in an indoor growing room,” Burns said. “Basically, it was a closet he had built inside the house. It had a heat lamp and insulated foam board.”
The plants had a street value of $20,000, police said.
“Glover told the agents that he was growing the plants to sell so he could make enough money to move to a state where marijuana was legal,” Burns said. “That’s a first.”
Glover is being held in Colbert County Jail.
