Ada County Sheriff’s deputies found 45 marijuana plants and a sophisticated growing operation inside a Boise Bench home last week.
Mark K. Foster is charged with felony counts of trafficking marijuana and manufacture of marijuana in connection with the case.
The 41-year-old Foster is set for a court appearance on Jan. 29.
Deputies began their investigation late last year after developing evidence Foster was growing pot inside his home in the 3800 block of Rose Hill Street in Boise.
Deputies served a search warrant on the home last Thursday (Jan. 14) around 3 p.m. and found:
- 45 marijuana plants.
- 1400 grams of marijuana trimmings.
- A large growing operation, which included irrigation, grow lights, heaters, and other equipment in the basement.
- Several items of drug paraphernalia and evidence of drug sales.
Deputies then arrested Foster on the two felonies and booked him into the Ada County Jail.
The sophistication of the irrigation, heat and light systems indicates the growing operation had been active for significant amount of time.
