Reserve Deputies Make Marijuana Arrests
Jackson County Sheriff Reserve Deputies Eric Browalski and Brad Barker made two arrests after locating 226 marijuana plants in a growing operation on Sunday April 23rd.
Blair and Kenneth Vierling, who showed up later, gave Browalski consent to search the home. During the search Marijuana was found growing in the basement, in a bathroom, and in the closet of another room.
The Marijuana in the basement was growing in three “greenhouses” that were ventilated and included grow lights. A drying station was located in the bathroom, and a bag with loose Marijuana, and Marijuana growing guides also were found.
Vierling and Blair stated they were growing the marijuana for personal use and giving some away. Chief Deputy Lt. Andy Wayman said it was fortunate that Browalski and Barker were able to recognize the signs of Marijuana use and took the additional steps necessary to make the arrests.
Blair and Vierling were both booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at approximately 1 a.m. Monday. Each have posted a $1,005 bond and were released.
