OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Thurston County authorities have seized more than 165 marijuana plants from a rental property owned by a member of Olympia’s City Council.

The Olympian reports that the county Narcotics Task Force raided the home owned by Councilman Steve Langer last week after receiving a complaint. Two warrants were served, but no arrests have been made.

Capt. Dave Johnson says the marijuana was seized from two outdoor greenhouses, which are visible from the road.

Langer says he was angry when he found out from a neighbor about the raid. He had checked in at the home recently and found “a few” marijuana plants, he said, but assumed the plants were legal under the state’s marijuana laws.
