An investigation by the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement team (RADE) led to the arrest of a Wolf Creek-area man.

Detectives arrested Richard Lacey, 62, who is the owner of the Get Your Hemp On/Southern Oregon Cannabis Club in Grants Pass.

The arrest came following an investigation that continued after Lacey's arrest last year on multiple felony marijuana charges, detectives said.

RADE team detectives served two search warrant on Wednesday, one at Lacey's home and another at his business.

They seized approximately 14 pounds of marijuana, 216 small marijuana plants, a firearm and other evidence at his home, investigators said.

At the business, detectives seized more than a pound of marijuana, about a pound of marijuana-laced candy, 90 small marijuana plants and other evidence, OSP told FOX 12.

The total estimated value of the seized processed marijuana is $37,500.

Lacey was arrested and lodged in the Josephine County Jail on two counts each of unlawful manufacture, distribution and possession of marijuana.

The 2011 charges are still pending a trial in Josephine County Circuit Court.
