    He must have not been giving the narcotics unit there cut of the money. Come on…. really? Going out and busting plant smokers instead of facing the real problem in franklin county, meth/ heroin.

    So your telling me canoers broke the law and trespassed to see what was inside someone’s home, sounds rather fishy to me, no wonder property owners do not like canoers. As for Franklin County “corruption” is a good word.
