Path from church pot plot leads to suspect

GROVE CITY, Pa. – Police say a western Pennsylvania man has been arrested and charged with growing marijuana on a church’s property.

State police arrested 28-year-old Jason Como on Saturday after the Beloved Disciples Church reported that two suspected marijuana plants were growing on their property in Grove City, about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Authorities found a small path that led from the plants to the backyard of a nearby home. They contacted Como and say he confessed to growing the plants.

Como was charged with manufacturing and cultivating a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Court papers don’t list an attorney for Como, and a phone number for him couldn’t immediately be located.
