HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) — A medical marijuana cardholder from Hamilton is charged with manufacturing hashish, having more marijuana plants than allowed and stealing a motorcycle.

The Ravalli Republic reports (http://bit.ly/1xgcm8D ) 54-year-old John Fredrick Archambault is charged with operating a clandestine laboratory; manufacturing, possessing and distributing dangerous drugs and misdemeanor theft.

He was booked into jail on Dec. 25 and remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of the $50,000 bond set by Justice of the Peace Jim Bailey.

Prosecutors say Archambault's arrest followed a tip from a confidential source.

Court records say officers found a glass vial used to process marijuana into hash, processed marijuana, methamphetamine and 21 marijuana plants. As medical marijuana cardholders, Archambault and his wife are allowed to have four mature plants each.
