LAS VEGAS — Authorities say former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss has been charged in Nevada with possession of marijuana with the intent to sell.
The Nye County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday that officers found nearly 400 marijuana plants growing in and around her home in Pahrump.
Fleiss was not arrested. No telephone listing could be found for her.
KVVU-TV Fox 5 said deputies arrived at Fleiss’ address last week looking for a woman wanted for arrest. Instead, they allegedly found marijuana plants in the backyard.
Fleiss was spotted walking home from a nearby house. Authorities say she told officers she had been growing marijuana without a license and said she intended to sell to a cooperative in Las Vegas.
Police said 158 marijuana plants were found in her backyard and 234 more in the nearby house.
