Troopers seize 243 marijuana plants from Meadow Lakes home

Posted: Friday, February 22, 2002

WASILLA (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers confiscated 243 marijuana plants from a home in Meadow Lakes, near Wasilla.

Troopers responded to the home at about 2 a.m. Wednesday when someone at the home called 911 and then hung up.

When troopers got to the home they found a large, hydroponic commercial marijuana-growing operation in the basement of the home. The largest plant was more than 9 feet tall, troopers said.

Troopers also found processed marijuana and associated growing equipment. The estimated street value of the plants is $486,000.

The man and woman living at the home were not arrested, but troopers have forwarded charges to the district attorney's office.
