Indoor Marijuana Grow Items Seized From Home

Criminal charges have been filed against a Smithfield man after items commonly used for an indoor marijuana grow operation were found in his home this month.

On May 11th, sheriff’s deputies responded to assist EMS with a medical call on Red House Road in the Brogden community east of Smithfield.  While at the address, officers reportedly saw in plain sight indoor grow lights on the living room floor plus a trash bag filled with harvested marijuana.

Joseph Chad Edmundson, 45, of Red House Road, Smithfield was arrested Tuesday and charged with three drug violations including possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver a controlled substance.
