Livingston County woman charged with growing marijuana
Paducah police say a woman was charged with growing marijuana after officers followed up on a tip from the Livingtston County Sheriff's Department.
The Paducah Police Department says after the Livingston County Sheriff's Department arrested 28-year-old Amanda Leach, investigators found photos of marijuana plants and text messages about them on her phone.
After interviewing Leach, the police department says, a Paducah police sergeant found five marijuana plants growing in the woods on South 7th Street.
The marijuana grow was across from Leach's home, police say. The plants were seized. Leach was charged with cultivating five or more marijuana plants and jailed in McCracken County Regional Jail.
