EAGLE — Ada County Sheriff’s deputies, Eagle Police and members of the Ada Metro Narcotics Task Force arrested an Eagle man after they found 70 marijuana plants in his home.

After attempting to stop Tyler C. Knarr, 26, for speeding Friday evening, a patrol deputy was led to a trailer home in the 900 block of South Parkinson, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office. Inside the trailer, investigators found what they called a “sophisticated” grow operation with adjustable lighting and ventilation systems.

“They had an entire operation — from young starter plants to mature plants about three feet tall. There were marijuana plants growing in every room,” Eagle Police Chief Dana Borgquist said.

It was later determined Knarr was wanted on a felony arrest warrant in Deschutes County, Ore., on a charge of manufacturing and delivery of marijuana. Knarr was placed under arrest and transported to the Ada County Jail. He was booked on a misdemeanor charge of providing false information to officers and felony charges of manufacturing/trafficking a controlled substance and fugitive to Idaho from the outstanding warrant in Oregon. Knarr was also wanted on a misdemeanor failure to appear charge in Ada County from October 2011. He is scheduled to be arraigned in district court Monday.

Deputies are working to confirm the identity of a passenger in Knarr’s vehicle who ran from the car during the initial traffic stop and was not located. Charges against him are possible. A woman and child who were also in the trailer at the time were allowed to leave. No charges were filed against the woman but the investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office said.
