LYNCHBURG, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 67-year-old Lynchburg man has been arrested on drug charges after a welfare check at the suspect’s home led deputies to discover more than $60,000 in marijuana plants.

Multiple media outlets report that Sumter County Sheriff’s Office says Carrigan Holloman has been charged with manufacturing marijuana.

Sheriff’s spokesman Braden Bunch says deputies responded to Holloman’s home after Department of Veterans Affairs officials asked them to check on Holloman’s health.

Deputies say they spotted several marijuana plants in the home and after receiving permission to search, found 32 marijuana plants and five guns.

Holloman is being held at Sumter-Lee Regional jail pending a bond hearing. It was unclear if he has an attorney.
