2123 Marijuana Plants Found on Two Properties in Shelter Cove, Says Sheriff’s Office
According to sheriff spokesperson Selena Zorrilla-Mendoza, “A search of the property resulted in the discovery of several large outdoor greenhouse marijuana cultivation ops on both parcels.” She said that the residence on Blueridge Road had an indoor grow also. Both properties together had a total of 2123 growing plants, according to Zorrilla-Mendoza.
“One suspect was located,” she explained. Various items were also located including processed marijuana bud, “documentation of sales, digital scales, packaging materials, US currency [$65,385], money orders, and two firearms.” Todd David Athey, age 54, was determined to be “responsible for the grows and was arrested for cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sales, conspiracy to commit a crime,” and possession of weapons during commission of crime.
His bail was set at $75,000.
UPDATE Friday: Multiple people in the community have approached us explaining that Athey does not own both pieces.
