Stink fading at Alliance police station after pot seizure

The city police station here still smells of marijuana three days after police raided what they believe was the largest indoor marijuana-growing operation in the city’s history.

A police dispatcher said the odor at the police station from the 260 seized plants was “horrible” on Tuesday evening, when the raid occurred, but “considerably less” by this evening.

Executing a search warrant after a 30-day investigation, police raided a home at 2115 S. Seneca Ave., and said they found the plants in four rooms in various stages of growth, some of them six feet tall, with an elaborate lighting, fertilizing and ventilating system on the premises.

They also found more than $7,000 in cash, believed to be proceeds from the growing operation, together with scales, packaging and shipping materials, computers and documents, they said.

Robert Baumgartner, 41, of that address, was arrested and charged with illegal marijuana cultivation, marijuana possession and trafficking, and possession of criminal tools, all felonies, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
