Pot Plants, Assault Rifles Seized In Western Md.

WESTERNPORT, Md. (AP) — A Westernport man has been charged with drug and weapons violations after authorities say they seized 13 marijuana plants, two assault rifles and a handgun at his home.

Colby Nestor, 22, remained in jail Monday after a judge kept his bond at $45,000.

Allegany County police arrested Nestor on Sunday. They say they found the plants and guns in his home Saturday while responding to a tip about a possible growing operation.

Nestor is charged with manufacturing and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm while drug trafficking.

Assistant Public Defender David Schram is declining to comment on the case.
