A Beverly man is behind bars after search of his home revealed a marijuana growing operation.
Agents with the Washington County Major Crimes Task Force searched 30-year-old Scott Armstrong's home and found 25 marijuana plants growing in the home's cistern.
Officials say Armstrong had the plants in containers with potting soil and used a grow light on a timer to aid in the growth. The weight of the plants totaled 2400 grams.
Armstrong was taken to the Washington County Jail and charged with a third degree felony for cultivation of marijuana.
He remains behind bars, without bond, until his appearance in Marietta Municipal Court on Monday.
