Superior residents face charges for growing marijuana

Superior Telegram


Two Superior residents are facing felony drug charges for allegedly growing marijuana plants in their home.

Fred Theodore Rose, 48, and Tracey Lynn Karr, 43, each face one count of manufacturing tetrahydrocannabinol. If convicted, they face maximum penalties of six years in prison  and fines of $10,000. The pair made initial appearances in Douglas County Circuit Court last week. According to the criminal complaint:

Members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant May 28 at the home where Rose and Karr lived in the 4000 block of E. Second St. Eight marijuana plants in red solo cups were found at the residence as well as a marijuana pipe, scale, drug paraphernalia and a baggie containing suspected marijuana.

Karr made a comment that it was an experiment and blamed Rose. When Det. Richard Schnell of the sheriff’s office commented to Karr that she was aware of the marijuana and smoked it, she agreed saying “yeah, but I’m dumb.”

Rose and Karr are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

They were each released on a $1,000 signature bond and ordered not to use or possess any controlled substances or paraphernalia without a prescription.
