401 marijuana plants seized from Issaquah collective

Seattle isn’t the only place law enforcement is cracking down on marijuana collectives:  King County Sheriff’s detectives say they seized a portion of 536 marijuana plants and about 65 pounds of processed marijuana they found at the Issaquah home of a registered felon today.

Detectives serving a search warrant on the 12700 block of 195 Place Southeast at about 10 a.m. discovered the home allegedly had a “collective grow” of medical marijuana, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office release. In addition to expired paperwork for growing the medical marijuana, detectives said they also found the registered felon illegally possessed a handgun.

“Due to compliance issues,” according to the release, detectives were able to seize only 401 of the 536 plants and 50 of the 65 pounds of the processed marijuana. The handgun and cash found at the house were also seized.

None of the house’s occupants were arrested, however. Detectives have forwarded the case to the King County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
