MONROE, Maine — A Waldo County man was arrested late last week after personnel from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Maine Warden Service found more than 100 mature marijuana plants and other drugs at his Pattee Road Extension home.

Adam Lynn, 31, initially was charged with marijuana cultivation in connection with the alleged growing operation, James Pease, supervisor of the MDEA’s Mid Coast District Task Force Office said in a news release issued Monday.

Additional charges may be filed as the investigation unfolds, Pease said.

Lynn, who was taken to Waldo County Jail after his arrest, has since been released on bail.

Pease said that Lynn was watering his crop of 107 marijuana plants when state drug agents and wardens arrived at his home last Thursday. All of the plants were fully grown and ready for harvesting, he said. Some plants were 7 feet tall, he said.

The plants, which were being grown in a dozen small plots containing about 10 plants each in Lynn’s back yard, had an estimated street value of $128,000, Pease said.

Pease said that in addition to the plants, agents found psilocybin mushrooms, hashish and processed marijuana at Lynn’s home. All of the drugs were seized, he said.
