A Fayette County grandmother said she’s no marijuana grower, just a woman who wanted something that would look pretty next to her tomatoes. A jury cleared Alberta Kelley, 67, of drug possession and manufacture charges on Wednesday after she told them she simply tossed a handful of seeds into her garden after a bearded stranger gave them to her.
Connellsville police charged Kelley a year ago after receiving a tip about Kelley’s garden. Investigators said they found seven well-cultivated, four-foot marijuana plants behind her home. But Kelley claimed she didn’t know what she was growing. She said she’d been given the seeds by a stranger in a pointy hat who told her they were flower seeds.
