Police arrested an English Road man Sunday night after it was discovered he was growing marijuana plants in his home, authorities said Monday.

Ronald S. Longo, 36, was charged with growing marijuana, and was lodged in the Salem County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 cash bail, according to Sgt. Robert Abel of Bridgeton state police barracks.

According to reports, police had originally been called to Longo's home at 75 English Road early Sunday evening in reference to a well-being check, Abel said.

When they arrived, they discovered the home locked, he said, adding that there were no lights on at the residence and plastic covered all of the windows.

After attempts to contact the occupants of the residence, police forced entry in to the home, Abel said.

The house was found unoccupied.

Upon further investigation, 323 marijuana plants were discovered in the basement of the home, according to Abel.

A search warrant later conducted by police found other drug paraphernalia as well, he added.

The incident is being investigated by Trooper Arthur Barilotti.

Salem County Prosecutor John Lenahan indicated Monday afternoon his office was also investigating the incident, but said further information in regard to the case would not be released until today.

ok but they cops were going in there to see if the guy was alright therefore the drugs that they came across in the basement cant even be used as evidence.......they didnt have a warrent right?

so those plants the guy should get off for....the only thing they could technically charge him with would be what ever they found when they went in with the warrent....am i right??? i dont know maybe canadas law are different :S
