According to BCSO Capt. Adam Spickler, that unrelated search turned up evidence of a marijuana growing operation that led the investigators to get a second search warrant.

When that warrant was executed, Steven M. Reimer, 53, was arrested on charges of unlawful cultivation and possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and failure to possess a tax stamp.

No information was available on the results of the search related to the initial warrant.
