A Taneytown man accused of growing more than 1,200 marijuana plants on his property and in a nearby cornfield is scheduled to enter a plea Monday.
Charles Russell Uhler, 60, of the 4400 block of Francis Scott Key Highway, is charged with manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute and possession of marijuana, according to electronic court files.
Uhler was arrested in January after the Maryland State Police Marijuana Eradication Unit spotted what they believed could be a marijuana-growing operation during an aerial flight, according to court records.
The Carroll County Drug Task Force went to the location and walked through the cornfield near Uhler's home and found numerous marijuana plants near his property and later found some behind his home while serving a warrant, according to the records.
Uhler is scheduled for a plea hearing in the Circuit Court for Carroll County at 9 a.m. Monday.
