A grand jury in Charlottesville has indicted a Louisa man for growing more than 300 marijuana plants.
Geoffrey Alan Cummings was charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of a firearm by a felon, and intent to distribute. Officers spotted more than 300 marijuana plants on Cummings property back in July 2006.
After searching Cummings' home agents found some plants to be as high as 12 feet, along with packaged marijuana and a shotgun. Cummings faces life imprisonment, a fine of more than 2 million dollars, and the possibility of losing his home in Louisa.
