in pot operation

A 29-year-old Steamboat Springs man is facing felony charges today after drug task officers seized about 1 pound of marijuana from the man’s home Tuesday.

All Crimes Enforcement Task Force Commander Garrett Wiggins said Brian McCleary turned himself in to the Routt County Sheriff’s Office at about 4 p.m. Wednesday on suspicion of distributing marijuana, possessing more than 8 ounces of marijuana and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Wiggins said task force officers began watching McCleary’s home at 1355 Hilltop Parkway after neighbors reported smelling strong odors of marijuana and suspicious activity around the home.

“When (McCleary) came to the door (Tuesday) there was an unmistakable pungent and strong odor of marijuana,” he said.
