MARSHVILLE, N.C. – A Union County dentist faces a number of charges after deputies say they discovered dozens of marijuana plants growing on his property.

Andrew Jackson Branch is charged with seven counts, including trafficking marijuana. Investigators say he had 23-ounces of packaged pot inside three vehicles and in his home on Riggins Road in Marshville.

The street value of the drugs is estimated to be more than $134,000. Deputies say they also found three pistols, 11 rifles, two shotguns and about $700.

Branch has a dental practice on North Broom Street in Waxhaw, N.C.
