POCAHONTAS, Ark. (AP) - Pocahontas police have arrested a man who they say was growing nearly 40 marijuana plants in a home he was renting.

Police Chief Cecil Tackett told KAIT-TV (https://bit.ly/1rHE5Ng ) on Monday that it’s “by far” the largest growing operation officers have discovered. He said the 37 plants ranged from seedlings to 5 feet tall.

Police were called to the residence for a welfare check after the homeowner said the 37-year-old tenant hadn’t paid rent in months. Officers say they could see and smell marijuana plants and obtained a search warrant.

Tackett says the man was arrested a few days later.

The man faces drug manufacturing and drug paraphernalia charges. Both are felonies.
