Acting on an anonymous tip, Quincy police officers confiscated marijuana plants worth approximately $1,500 Friday morning. Marcus Baker, 34, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, cultivating marijuana and maintaining a drug house at his Lowe Street home.
"He was growing the plants in seedling pots inside the house on a window sill, possibly getting them ready to transplant them into the soil," said Inv. Clarence Pearson.
Baker has been arrested in the past on marijuana charges, according to Sgt. Robert Mixon.
