CALEDONIA (WITI) — The wife of a Caledonia man arrested and charged in connection with a “sophisticated marijuana grow operation” discovered at a home on Highway V in Caledonia back in June of 2013 has had the case against her dropped.
Mary Gullan faced the following charges:
- manufacture/deliver THC as party to a crime
- possession with intent to deliver or manufacture THC as party to a crime
- maintaining a drug trafficking place as party to a crime
The court decided on Monday, July 28th, 2014 to dismiss the case against Mary Gullan because her husband, Raymond Gullan has taken responsibility for all controlled substances found in their home.
45-year-old Raymond Gullan of Caledonia initially faced five charges in the case, including:
- possession with intent to deliver THC (less than 200 grams) – a felony
- manufacturing/delivering THC (greater than 2,500 to 10,000 grams) – a felony
- possession with intent to delivery THC (greater than 200 to 1,000 grams) – a felony
- maintaining a drug trafficking place – a felony
- carrying a concealed weapon – a misdemeanor
Gullan pleaded guilty to the felony possession with intent to deliver THC (greater than 200 to 1,000 grams) – a felony charge.
All other charges against him were dismissed, following his guilty plea.
Raymond Gullan was sentenced in April to three years in state prison and three years of extended supervision. That sentence was stayed.
Gullan was ordered to serve probation for three years.
If he violates his probation, he is to serve one year in jail, with Huber release for work.
During a search warrant of Gullan’s home in the 7700 block of County Road V in Caledonia, officials recovered over a pound of marijuana, 42 grams of hashish and what officials call a “sophisticated indoor hydroponics marijuana grow operation,” consisting of 134 marijuana plants.
Officials also recovered an assault rifle, three semi-automatic handguns and ammunition.
A two-page criminal complaint against Gullan says members of the Racine County Metro Drug Unit set up a controlled buy on Tuesday, June 25th, 2013 at the Renaissance Cinema in Sturtevant using a confidential informant. The complaint says Gullan showed up and was arrested.
In Gullan’s car deputies found more than 130 grams of marijuana, a semi-automatic handgun, pepper spray, knives and ammunition. The drug operation was found later in the day at Gullan’s house.
The criminal complaint in the case indicates Mary Gullan was home at the time officers executed a search warrant, and they discovered the basement door was padlocked. The complaint says Gullan initially denied knowledge of the location of the key, but when officers said they would break down the door, Gullan found the key and opened the door.
