Clear Spring man faces drug charge
CLEAR SPRING - A Clear Spring man was charged with growing marijuana in his house after an SPCA humane officer tipped authorities off, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Department.
An officer from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was investigating an animal complaint in the area of 12772 Independence Road last Friday when he noticed marijuana, Cpl. Daryl Sanders said.
James Calvin Myers, 27, was charged on Sunday with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Myers allowed authorities to search his home, and when they did, they found three 3-foot marijuana plants, trace amounts of the drug and marijuana pipes, Sanders alleged.
