(CLINTON COUNTY) The Clinton County Sheriff's Department said they seized more than $150,000 dollars worth of marijuana from a home.

The department said they found the narcotics after serving Gregory Pope Jr., 34, of Lawson, Missouri, a search warrant on Friday.


Authorities said once in the home they discovered 12 pounds of marijuana, along with a Sasquah hydraulic rosin press, 37 sheets of marijuana wax with a matching press pattern, digital scales and smoking devices.

"Once the case is disposed of then the court will order us to destroy it, and then we'll destroy all of the narcotics," Clinton County Sheriff Larry Fish said.

Pope was arrested on Saturday and charged with possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and manufacture of a controlled substance.

Another beautiful day across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. A weak cold front has moved by and we will see some cooling across the area. Highs will cool down in to the 50s Wednesday and Thursday.
