Madison County deputies arrested a man for cultivating marijuana (less than five plans), marijuana possession and first-degree controlled substance possession (heroin) after they went to a residence at Lowery Heights to serve an unrelated warrant that he was wanted on for a probation violation.
When they spoke with Chris Coleman (no image available), 41, Brooks Road, they could smell marijuana coming from the home, according to a citation. They could also hear a baby crying and went into the home to check on the baby.
When they found one of the baby's parents, they asked the parent if there was marijuana in the home, and they said that if there was, it would be in the bathroom, but they didn't know, the citation states.
Police then asked Coleman where the marijuana was in the house, and he said it was in the bathroom, the citation states. Deputies entered the bathroom and found a baggie of suspected marijuana, four marijuana plants and marijuana on the shelves of a closet.
Coleman was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon. When he arrived there, a deputy jailer found suspected heroin in one of his pockets.
