NH Man Arrested After Police Find Marijuana Grow Op in Woods
WOLFEBORO — A man was arrested after Forest Rangers found a marijuana grow operation in the woods that he had been maintaining for some time, police said.
Wolfeboro police said the Rangers alerted them to a potential marijuana growing operation in the woods off Cotton Mountain Road. They sent officers to investigate the area and found several marijuana plants.
After a two-month investigation police identified Mark Dubel, 54, of Wolfeboro, as a suspect.
Police said they gathered additional evidence that showed that Dubel had been caring for the plants for an extended period of time.
Police obtained a warrant and seized the plants Sept. 27.
Police arrested Dubel on Wednesday and charged him with possession of a controlled narcotic, a class B felony. He was released on $500 personal recognizance and is set to appear in Carroll County Superior Court on Oct. 26 at 9 a.m.
