8-foot Pot Plant In Blind Woman’s Yard

ROCK HILL, S.C., Aug. 10 (UPI) — While searching for two suspects, detectives in South Carolina discovered an 8-foot tall marijuana plant growing in a blind woman’s yard, police said.

Sheriffs came across the plant growing near a shed in the 57-year-old homeowner’s yard while tracking down suspects in an unrelated case Monday in Rock Hill, S.C., WBTV, Charlotte, reported.

The woman told police officers she is legally blind and was unaware of the plant in the yard. She said her boyfriend, Daniel Matthew Ashworth, 48, did all of the landscaping in her yard.

When police caught up with Ashworth, he admitted to them that he was growing the plant, saying that he was “just experimenting with growing it.” He also told police that he didn’t use marijuana.

Police were granted permission to search the blind woman’s home, and found no other drugs there. The 8-foot plant was taken in as evidence.

Ashworth was arrested and charged with producing marijuana.
