Martin County Sheriff's deputies say they have a marijuana grower in custody.
Deputies arrested 40-year-old Willard Russell Clements because they say on Wednesday, they found 154 marijuana plants growing inside his home in Jamesville. Deputies say that if the plants had matured they'd be worth nearly $400,000.
Warrants were served and Clements turned himself into authorities where he was charged with a number of drug violations.
