Franklin County narcotics investigators raided a home Wednesday and seized almost 60 marijuana plants in various stages of growth along with grow lights and other equipment.

The raid was at a home on Picklesford Road in the Anaconda area west of St. Clair.

Deputies said growing equipment and about 40 plants were found inside the home and 18 large plants were found growing outside.

A 35-year-old man was booked and released pending lab analysis of the plants, an investigator said.
