Vt. man arrested on drug charges, dad turns him in

Posted: Updated:

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man is facing marijuana charges after his father turned him in to police, saying his son was growing it in some bedroom closets.

Nicholas Hough, 20, of St. Johnsbury, pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of marijuana cultivation and a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession Monday.

Police said Hough's father, Clifton Hough, went to the state police in February and said he suspected his son had set up marijuana growing operations in both of his bedroom closets at their home.

The Caledonian-Record reports the 51-year-old Hough told police he wanted to put a "scare" into his son and no longer wanted illegal activity in his home.

Police executed a search warrant several days later and found four suspected marijuana plants, and drug paraphernalia.
