Edgewater Man Found Growing $350,000 Worth of Marijuana

Though marijuana is becoming legal to buy in Illinois with a doctor’s consent, it is still very much illegal to grow.  An Edgewater resident, 39 year old Brian Mayhall, found this out the hard way last Sunday.

Police officers arrived at the man’s apartment on the 5700 block of Winthrop and noticed an overwhelming stench of cannabis. They peeked inside the door and noticed the plants being grown. When the officers asked to search the apartment, Mr. Mayhall agreed.

They officially arrested the man and took into possession about a street value of over $350,000 of  illegal contraband including 49 marijuana plants, growing equipment and paraphernalia.
