Police seized 22 marijuana plants from two Cache County homes in the past week.

On Aug. 14, the Cache/Rich Drug Task Force got an anonymous tip that someone was growing marijuana at a house in Nibley. Police searched the home, found three six-foot-tall plants and arrested the 64-year-old suspected grower, said Logan Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis.

The Nibley man told police that the plants were only for personal use, Curtis said.

Then on Aug. 21, another tip led the task force to a home in the Newton area where agents found 19 plants inside and outside the house, Curtis said. Police arrested a 67-year-old man and a 58-year-old man who live at the home.

Because of the much larger number of plants, Curtis said he believes the pair was growing marijuana for distribution.
