Sentencing is planned for May 10 for a Juneau man arrested for trying to grow marijuana in a home off of North Douglas Highway.
Juneau police say as many as 181 marijuana plants and grow equipment were found last December at a residence at the 5000 block of the highway. Total value of everything seized was estimated at $200,000. Scott Eberhardt, 27, a tenant of the residence, was charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance.
A jury trial in the case was planned for last week. A change of plea hearing was held on Thursday morning.
