INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Indian River County sheriff's deputies went to David Fredrick Ellis home in Fellsmere. The 64-year-old man drew attention to himself when he allegedly was "open burning" a pile of pot leaves.
According to our Treasure Coast news-partner TCPalm, "Ellis said it was “just some leaves,” but a deputy smelled a strong burned marijuana odor. The deputy also saw the remains of small pot plants and leaves."
