    Troopers raid Valley marijuana operation; couple charged

    Alaska State Troopers have seized more than 500 marijuana plants and $83,000 in cash from a commercial growing operation in Wasilla.

    The Mat Su Drug Unit also seized guns, vehicles and growing equipment following the search on Monday of the Wasilla home of Trace Thoms, 46, and his wife, Jennifer Thoms, 35, troopers said.

    Investigators found 511 plants weighing 214 pounds -- which would yield roughly 36 pounds of processed pot -- as well as growing equipment and processed marijuana, troopers said.

    They also seized $82,945 in cash, two guns, a Ford F-250, a Volvo front-end loader, a large enclosed utility trailer, five snowmachines and an ATV, troopers said.

    The Thomses were both charged with four counts of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, troopers said.

    Thanks for posting this SamanthaRabbit

    Please note that the way we post news has changed, because of our main news page. You can find the full instructions here.

    The most important changes are:

    • Articles are no longer posted in quotes.
    • The introduction of the article should be in bold.
    • Images should be added if possible and placed in the article, following the instructions linked to above and here.
    • Information about the article, like link, author, date should be posted below the article.
    • Your personal comments about the article can be posted either in quotes at the end of the article or in a separate post.
    • The news forums may contain news articles only
    • Make sure you include all the text from the original article. Don't just post the URL because web pages often disappear or get moved over time. Remove all unnecessary formatting from the text before posting. One easy way to do this is to paste the text into notepad or another text editor first, which will remove any formatting. Also try to remove picture captions, advertisement links and other text that doesn't belong to the body of the article.

    Please be so kind to review your articles and correct this.

    Further it may be good to know that recent articles with the highest thread ratings show up on the main news page. So without ratings, many people will not see it. So please rate news threads.

    The main news page is accessible from the tabs on the top of any DF page.
