Police seize 82 pot plants in bust near Brunswick High School
BRUNSWICK — Police arrested a 33-year-old man Wednesday and seized 82 marijuana plants and a hydroponic system at his home.
Police arrested Eric Colgan of 90 Maquoit Road at about 5 p.m. The arrest was the result of a search warrant, part of an ongoing drug investigation by the Brunswick Police Department and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
All of the plants and the hydroponic growing system were seized in the arrest.
Colgan is charged with aggravated cultivation of marijuana and aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs, both Class C felonies. The charges are considered aggravated because the alleged operation was within 1,000 feet of Brunswick High School.
Colgan was transported to Cumberland County Jail in Portland, where he was later released on unsecured bail of $15,000.
He is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Portland on Nov. 4.
