BENTLEYVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Police believe a small home in Washington County was more like a greenhouse for marijuana.

Officers early Friday arrested a man after they found more than 70 marijuana plants in the home on Main Street in Bentleyville.

Police say pot was growing in three different rooms. Officers confiscated growing lights, ventilation equipment, irrigation gear and a humidifier.

Thirty-eight-year-old Richard Ritenour faces drug charges and is held in the Washington County Jail. It’s not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
