SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have charged a 53-year-old Sidney man who they say was growing marijuana in a field of corn.

Records say Floyd Kettle bonded out of jail after being arrested on two counts of marijuana distribution and one of marijuana cultivation. A phone listed for Kettle was not in service Tuesday. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

Authorities say Kettle sold marijuana to police informants earlier this year. They learned that he was growing the pot himself, so a tracking device was placed on Kettle’s vehicle. Authorities say the device guided them to the field where the pot was found.
