Several marijuana plants were taken from a Woodville house Wednesday night by Leon County Sheriff’s detectives, said spokesman Chris Chase.
The homeowner, Kreg Brown, 47, was arrested on charges of marijuana cultivation and possession.
Detectives allegedly discovered the plants, most of which were in the initial stages of growth, behind a home in the 10000 block of Sage Run Way. One four to five-foot tall plant was ready for cultivation, Chase said.
During the house search, detectives found eagle and owl talons, alligator skulls and bone fossils probably taken from rivers, said Lt. Kent Harvey of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Harvey said Kreg faces charges of possession of illegal animal parts and having fossils without a collection permit. Brown could face federal charges under the Migratory Bird Act, Harvey said.
Brown was released from the Leon County Jail on $3,000 bail.
Wow. I have a great big bowl full of fossils from Florida. Anytime someone digs a hole for a fencepost you get a big pile of them. I hadn't realized I was such a wild criminal. Come and get me Coppers, you'll never take me alive. You'll take my fossils when you pry my cold dead hands from around them. Silly-asses.
