Suffolk man to spend a year in jail for growing 100 marijuana plants
Suffolk, Va. – A Suffolk man will spend a year in jail after pleading guilty to growing marijuana.
Justin Carr was sentenced to 12 years but 11 of those were suspended.
Back in May police found 100 marijuana plants at a home on Vicksburg Road in Suffolk.
Police say each plant was fully grown and able to produce a pound of pot.
Carr was arrested with Lleslie VanHoose and Johnathan Brown. Each of their Facebook pages said they worked as landscapers or with plants.
VanHoose and Jonathan Brown pleaded guilty in October to drug charges related to the bust but have not been sentenced.
