Ozawkie man charged with cultivating marijuana

Charges have been filed against Chester D. Pottorf, Ozawkie, for allegedly cultivating marijuana plants.

Pottorf was charged in November with distributing hallucinogens, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the court records Pottorf was alledgedly found with several bags of a green leafy substance that was believed to be marijuana. In addition a trash container with “green stock vegetation” was found in Pottorf’s possession along with triple beam scales and shears.

Also recovered was a photo album that allegedly contained photos of Pottorf in a marijuana field.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig said that the pictures seemed to be dated and that a field was never found. However, items were found in Pottorf’s home that indicated a possible growing operation.

Nearly a year went by before prosecutors officially charged Pottorf. A $10,000 bond was set for his release.
