An Upper Peninsula man is asking a judge to suppress evidence of more than 200 marijuana plants, which were seized after his daughter told her kindergarten teacher about homegrown pot.
Federal Magistrate Judge Timothy Greeley says there was probable cause to search Randall Fieck’s home last January. But Fieck’s lawyer is asking another federal judge to overrule that report and quash the search warrant.
Kingsford police went to Fieck’s home after his daughter had a strong odor of marijuana on her clothes at school.
Fieck had a medical marijuana card, but the number of plants likely exceeds what’s allowed under state law. He’s charged in federal court.
Because of the marijuana card, Fieck’s lawyer says police had no probable cause to believe there was criminal activity to justify a search.
