An Athens County, Ohio man is behind bars accused of operating a marijuana growing operation out of a Millfield home.

Once inside, deputies say they found 50 pounds of marijuana, worth $200,000. They say Gribbet was growing the drug in the basement and then processing it on the main floor of the home.
Gribbet is currently in the South East Ohio Regional Jail.
