WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. - Washington County deputies have accused two men of growing marijuana on their property. 

"Investigators were greeted at the door of a home in the Yates Settlement area of Washington County by 56-year-old Timothy Skipper," officials wrote.

Investigators found several marijuana plants under grow lights. Investigators also located a small wooden box containing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in the master bedroom.

Deputies found additional plants outside of Skipper’s mobile home, near his brother’s home, which is located on the same property.

A total of 68 marijuana plants were confiscated from the property.

Timothy Skipper was arrested and charged with cultivation of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
