The deputies were responding to an unrelated call when another resident waved them over to talk about his marijuana.

Deputies say the resident, 65-year-old Arthur Carracino, was smoking marijuana at the time.

He then walked over to show law enforcement a 2-foot tall marijuana plant growing on his property.

When deputies asked Carracino if he had a marijuana card, he told them he was working on it.

Flagler County Jail records show Carracino was arrested on a marijuana charge.
