A Skippack man is facing multiple drug and weapons charges after Pennsylvania State Police troopers allegedly spotted a plot of marijuana plants in his yard on Bridge Road from a helicopter.
Michael David Diehl, 35, was caught by police running toward the house carrying several marijuana plants, police said. Diehl’s 5-year-old daughter was also on the property at the time.
A search of the property yielded 14 marijuana plants, 15 long guns and ammunition, five handguns with ammunition and three long gun barrels, according to police.
Diehl was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple drug charges.
State Police found that Diehl was convicted of carrying a firearm without a license in 2000, and third-degree felony theft, both of which prevented him from possessing weapons.
