COWETA, Okla. — Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliott says Deputies arrested Daniel Russell, of Coweta, for burglarizing a medical marijuana grow facility in the Timber Brook area of Wagoner County.
Elliott says Deputies found Russell on a suspicious male call near near 71st and 221st on Sept 12.
They found him with ‘grass stains’ on his clothes, and a backpack nearby full of $1,000 worth of weed. With the grass stains on Russell and knowing they were near a medical marijuana grow facility, deputies arrested Russell--who they later found out did not have a medical marijuana card.
Deputies located the victim, who said Russell was an ex--spouse, and confirmed Russell broke in and caused $6,000 worth of damage to the grow facility. Sheriff Elliott says September is a prime month for this kind of activity because it’s harvest season, and marijuana plants are at full maturity.
