Police: Providence man growing 100s of pot plants in home
PROVIDENCE (AP) — Rhode Island State Police have arrested a Providence man they say had hundreds of marijuana plants and a gun in his home.
State police executed a search warrant on the home of 31-year-old Anthony Patti on Friday.
Investigators say they found more than 440 marijuana plants, about eight pounds of dried marijuana, and a loaded .22 semi-automatic handgun. Police say as a convicted felon, Patti was not allowed to possess a gun.
He was arraigned Friday on several gun and drug charges and held without bail. It could not immediately be determined if Patti has an attorney.
