On 10/26/2014 at approximately 4:43pm OFC. Sheena Yohe and Off. Eric Morton of the Frederick Police Department responded to the 1700 Blk of Stonehaven Lane for a domestic stand-by. Upon arrival, both officers were contacted by the victim who wanted to retrieve some of her personal belonging from the house. Once inside house, the victim informed officers her husband, later identified as William Howard Franklin, was growing marijuana in a secured area in the basement. Based on the officer’s investigation and noticing a fresh marijuana leaf in plain view, the residence was seized and a search warrant was sought.
After obtaining the warrant and searching the residences, officers found eight fully grown marijuana plants, marijuana seeds, plant growing material and drug paraphernalia. Mr. Franklin was placed under arrest and transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center’s Central Booking Unit where he is awaiting an appearance before the district court commissioner.
