A Juneau man awaiting sentencing on a charge stemming from getting caught growing marijuana is facing new charges after another arrest on Friday.
Members of Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs, a southeast interagency task force, say they got a tip that Scott W. Eberhardt, 28, was to pick up a package at a post office. The package was intercepted and allegedly contained multiple tablets of Roxicodone concealed inside.
They served a search warrant at Eberhardt’s new residence on Jennifer Drive and allegedly found a marijuana grow operation with 61 plants.
Eberhardt was charged with second degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and three counts of fourth degree misconduct involving a controlled substance. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center to await arraignment.
His next court hearing is Tuesday afternoon.
Eberhardt is awaiting sentencing on earlier charge for growing as many as 181 marijuana plants at a North Douglas highway residence. That hearing is scheduled for May 10th.
