Franklin man faces pot charges




A Franklin man’s fingerprints were found on light bulbs and boxes inside an industrial building where nearly 500 marijuana plants were being grown, police said.

Jonathan Z. Baker, 31, was renting the building at 200 Eastview Drive where police found full-grown marijuana plants, seedlings, growing lights and an automated irrigation system to water the plants, according to a police report.

Baker became upset when talking with police, saying he knew what they found inside the building, wondering what charges he was facing and if he would be facing five or 10 years in prison, according to a police report.
