U.S. marshals Thursday arrested a Lurgan Township, Pa., man found living in the woods near more than 200 marijuana plants.

Robert G. Henry, 51, of no fixed address was wanted by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office for failure to appear for sentencing in Franklin County Court on charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, manufacture of a controlled substance, criminal conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshal's Office.

Henry was found in the woods near a house at 1 White Oak Lane, the release said.

At approximately 12:30 p.m. Thursday, marshals along with officers from the sheriff's office and the Pennsylvania State Police searched the White Oak Lane property. They found Henry in the woods adjacent to the house with 105 marijuana plants he was tending, the release said.

After obtaining a warrant and searching the property, police found an additional 116 marijuana plants, 5 pounds of processed marijuana, several smaller bags of processed marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia, the release said.

The street value of the marijuana seized was estimated to be more than $200,000, the release said.  

Henry was living in a small camp in the woods with a cot and a stockpile of canned goods, the release said.

Henry was being held in the Franklin County Jail Thursday on a May 18 bench warrant for failure to appear for sentencing.  

He now faces new charges of manufacture of a controlled substance, criminal conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, the marshal's office said.  

Marshals were assisted in the investigation by the sheriff's office, the Franklin County District Attorney's Office, state police and members of the Franklin County Drug Task Force.
