A Crosby, Minn., man was arrested with more than 100 marijuana plants after he got into a fight with his neighbor.

Jerry Dean Erickson, 50, was arrested Tuesday after the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office responded to a call of a dispute between neighbors on the 300 block of Third Avenue, the sheriff's office said. Upon arrival, deputies noticed several marijuana plants growing near Erickson's garden. Agents with the Lakes Area Drug Investigative Division were contacted and a search of Erickson's property and the adjacent property was conducted, with 100 mature marijuana plants seized.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl said the marijuana recovered from the scene had a $10,000 to $20,000 potential street value.
