COTTAGEVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say they have seized around 1,800 marijuana plants from a greenhouse in Colleton County.

Deputies said officers also found about 65 pounds of dried and packaged marijuana when they searched the house near Cottageville on Friday.

Investigators said the owner of the home, 62-year-old Michael Rea, was charged with manufacturing marijuana and trafficking marijuana.

It wasn’t known if Rea had a lawyer.
