Acting on a tip that Paul Scott Stoner, 42, was selling marijuana to children, police raided his Unionville home last Thursday and discovered the plants, prescription drugs, hypodermic needles, drug paraphernalia and guns, according statement released by the Blue Ridge Narcotics Task Force.

Stoner has been charged with growing marijuana and for having a firearm while in possession of more than a pound of marijuana, police said.

Other charges are pending. Stoner’s trial was set for August 27.
