Pueblo, CO: Pueblo County Sheriff’s Narcotics Detectives arrested a 52-year-old man today after finding 30 pounds of dried marijuana and more than 120 marijuana plants growing in a Vineland home.

Sheriff’s Patrol Deputies went to the home in the 1500 block of 33rd Lane on Thursday after receiving a tip of a possible illegal marijuana grow at the home. A resident of the home, Kenneth Heritsch admitted to deputies he had 36 marijuana plants growing in the home. State law allows only 12 plants per home.

Deputies left the home and sought and received a warrant to search the home. Earlier today, Narcotics Detectives executed the search warrant and found 121 marijuana plants growing in the home along with 30 pounds of dried marijuana, 55 grams of psilocybin mushrooms and an undetermined amount of cash. The marijuana plants have an estimated street value of $121,000 and the value of the dried marijuana product is estimated at $39,000.

Detectives arrested Heritsch for possession with intent to manufacture/distribute marijuana, cultivation of marijuana (more than 30 plants) and possession of a schedule 1 substance. He was booked into Pueblo County Jail
