Marijuana bust in Isabella County nets 48 pounds

A northeastern Isabella County man is behind bars after a tip led police to his home, where they found 48 pounds of marijuana having what officers said is a street value of nearly $100,000. 51-year old Thomas Paisley of Wise Township was arraigned Monday on two counts of delivery/manufacture of marijuana, one count of maintaining a drug house and a felony firearm violation. The Morning Sun reports Paisley was arrested Sunday after undercover officers from the multi-jurisdictional Bay Area Narcotics Enforcement Team searched his home after receiving a tip. Detectives found nearly 49 pounds of processed marijuana, with a street value estimated at $97,400. They also found roughly 24 marijuana plants that were determined to have a street value of $10,000; nearly $2,000 in cash; six rifles; and one handgun. Paisley remains in the Isabella County jail in lieu of $40,000 bond. (MRN)
