300K in Marijuana Plants seized

One Johnson County home contained about 155 marijuana plants, which police seized Thursday morning.

According to authorities, this was a fairly elaborate setup that the individual had in the Van Lear area of the county.

It included irrigation and lighting equipment, which police also seized.

Police arrested Larry Conley, charging him with cultivation of five or more marijuana plants, according to records from the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

The marijuana had a value of about $300,000, according to Kentucky State Police.
