(BLACKFOOT) – A routine welfare check led to the arrest of a Blackfoot man Monday night. Fifty-four-year-old James Griswold was found with 29 marijuana plants in his home. Officers found the home vacant on their first check up, and returned with a warrant to seize the plants, valued at nearly $120,000. Griswold was taken into custody during the second search and was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. He was released from jail Tuesday, but will be back in court April 26.
