LOGAN, Utah — Cache County Sheriffs say marijuana plants were discovered in two  homes in the last week.

Deputies were tipped by anonymous callers alerting them to the operations. One of them was on Hollow Road in Nibley, where officers executed a search warrant on Aug. 14 and found three marijuana plants and “other products.”

Police believe a 64-year-old man at the residence grew the plants. He was not arrested but was issued a summons to appear in court.

On Aug. 21, Cache RICH Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 6100 Northwest and 7500 North in Newton and found a marijuana grow operation both inside and outside the residence. Officers seized 19 plants and a hand gun.

Two suspects were arrested, 58-year-old Michael Hake and 67-year-old Thomas Poulos were brought to jail and appeared in court on Aug. 21.
