Troopers bust marijuana operations

Posted: Wednesday, January 16, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Narcotics agents served warrants on homes in Willow and Talkeetna over the weekend, seizing marijuana plants at both homes.

The search Saturday at the home in Willow turned up 38 marijuana plants, growing equipment and supplies.

The search Sunday at a home in Talkeetna yielded 28 plants, lighting systems, growing equipment, prescription medication and processed marijuana. The warrant was issued after troopers found evidence of a marijuana growing operation while investigating a domestic violence assault.

Charges against the residents of both homes have been forwarded to the district attorney's office, troopers said.

The Mat-Su narcotics unit includes investigators from the Alaska State Troopers and police from Palmer and Wasilla.
