Court documents indicate Clarion County Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) filed criminal charges against 47-year-old Robert Jason Smyers and 42-year-old Katie Joleen Shreckengost, both of Summerville.

According to a criminal complaint, on August 26, CNET officers traveled to a property in Redbank Township, Clarion County, after receiving a tip about a marijuana grow operation in the front yard of the residence.

The officers found a wooden structure with plastic wrapped around it in the front yard of the residence with a marijuana plant sticking up above the top of the structure, in plain view.

Police then approached the front door of the residence and reportedly observed several large marijuana plants enclosed on three sides by plastic with one side open toward the front of the residence.

The officers then knocked at the door and made contact with Robert Smyers and Katie Shreckengost.

According to the complaint, when questioned about the plants, both Smyers and Shreckengost indicated they had knowledge of the plants, and Smyers admitted to growing the marijuana to smoke.

When police advised that they would be confiscating the plants, Smyers stated: “This sucks, it was a lot of work,” the complaint notes.

Smyers added that he had “just recently transferred one of the plants from a tote into the ground,” the complaint indicates.

The officers then removed a total of seven plants from the property.

Smyers and Shreckengost were arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller at 9:10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 28, on the following charges:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony (two counts)
– Intentional Possession of Controlled Substance by Person Not Registered, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

Both individuals were released on $7,500.00 unsecured bail each.

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for 10:45 a.m. on October 12 with Judge Miller presiding.

If you're stupid enough to grow weed in the front yard then you deserve to get cited.

I'm pro-weed and all, but I'm just as much anti-stupidity.

Anti-stupidity is the first precept of gardening. If you don't learn it from a cactus, giant hogweed or some deadly nightshade will definitely drive the point home. It sounds as though this dimwit did everything but put it under grow lights so it would continue to grow at night. You can only expect your neighbors to mind their own business if you don't make your business their business.

Are you talking from personal growing experience?

There is only enough room for one prick in my pants, so I never though to ever put a cactus in my pocket .

Ah, but you obviously aren't a gardener. I have a plant that someone gave me that was smuggled out of China as an additive in a corsage. It was a cutting of course.  I keep it for its backstory. Don't put a cactus in your pocket especially those that grow on the sand dunes no matter how tempted. You will lose a pair of shorts and have some major future discomfort. Perhaps more than I had.
