COMANCHE, Okla. – A former Oklahoma police officer ended up on the wrong side of the law after allegedly cultivating marijuana.

Officers with the Stephens County District Attorney’s Drug Task Force were tipped off about the operation by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper.

Authorities learned Roy Collinsworth, a former a reserve officer for the Comanche Police Department, was growing and selling marijuana near his business.

According to KSWO, Collinsworth let investigators search the business but initially would not allow them to look at a second building he owned.

Eventually, he allowed them to begin their search.

Officials say they found a 25-plant hydroponic system, crushed marijuana leaves, grow lights, fertilizer and several pumps.

Collinsworth was arrested.

According to officials with the Comanche Police Department, Collinsworth resigned from his post with the police department in July.
