NORWAY — Police are on pot patrol in downtown Norway after several more marijuana plants were discovered this week.

On Wednesday, two plants were found in the alley behind the former Colonial coffee shop, Police Chief Rob Federico said.

The discovery was made by Officer Keith Tilsley, who was apparently out again Thursday evening on Main Street looking in flower beds and other potential grow sites for more plants. At least one more plant was found.

Federico said Friday morning that he could not confirm Thursday’s find without seeing the officer’s report first.

The illegal plants first cropped up under a tree in front of Woodman’s Sporting Goods store on Main Street earlier this month.

An 18-inch pot plant was discovered by someone planting flowers in the bed that was cut into the sidewalk for a tree in front of the building, which is next to the Fare Share market. Many pedestrians — even police officers — walked past it all summer without noticing it, officials said at that time.

Federico said that anyone finding an illegal plant should call police immediately.
