A Louisa man pleaded guilty Tuesday to growing more than 300 marijuana plants.
53-year-old Geoffrey Cummings faced three charges including growing at least 100 marijuana plants, intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The investigation began after a state police helicopter spotted 300 marijuana plants on Cummings' property during a routine flyover. Officials say some of the plants were more than 12 feet high.
Cummings is scheduled to be sentenced on July 23rd. He faces a minimum of 10 years in prison because of a prior drug trafficking conviction in New York.
