The Pinal County Sheriff’s Department has broken up what it says was a major marijuana growing operation and arrested the man they say was running it at a home in Saddlebrook, Arizona. Pat Ramirez of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department said officers found 97 marijuana plants at the home of medical marijuana cardholder Stephen Cartright, and he says that wasn’t all.

“Detectives also located 64.2 pounds of packaged marijuana ready for sale, dangerous drugs, which included psychedelic mushrooms and drug paraphernalia,” Ramirez said

Ramirez said members of a narcotics task force served a search warrant at Cartright’s home, after getting a tip that he was selling high-grade marijuana out of the residence. Cartright has been arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail.
