ALTOONA, Pa. - Two Penn State University students and a recent graduate were charged with possessing more than $500,000 worth of marijuana plants seized from an apartment.

The 346 plants were found Sunday afternoon after firefighters answered a false alarm call reporting a fire in the building. Altoona police got a search warrant and seized the plants, which prosecutors said have an estimated street value of $519,000.

Kimberly Jasorka, 22, of Womelsdorf, Jared Gagne, 23, of Altoona, and Patrick Kelly, 23, of State College, were arrested Tuesday in State College. Jasorka graduated in 2005.

They were charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, criminal conspiracy, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

  • Over 1000 dollars a plant? What a bunch of lying buffoons. They can only find these grows when they fall on their lap. What's the penalty for the false 911 caller? Probably nothing just like the phoney marijuana petitioners that used the signatuires to register people as Republicans.

  • What's the penalty for a false call to 911? Nothing, unless you're smoking a joint.The real drug dealers never get caught.
