A Hull man is in the Plymouth County House of Correction awaiting trial on charges stemming from the discovery March 18 of 17 marijuana plants growing hydroponically in his woodshop on Harold Place, police said. Sergeant Neill Reilly said police also found a shotgun, double-edged boot knife, anabolic steroids, methadone, and oxycodone. Reilly said police had a search warrant and David Teagan, who is a cabinetmaker, cooperated by showing them the secret door behind a pegboard that led to a “grow” room equipped with lights, ventilation, and watering systems.
