A Minnesota mayor and his son are accused of growing about 240 marijuana plants, well in excess of the state’s eight-plant limit for personal cultivation.

Winnebago mayor Scott Robertson, 67, and Jacob Robertson, 46, are formally charged with two counts of first-degree cannabis crime–unlawfully cultivates more than 23 cannabis plants; one count of conspiracy to commit first-degree cannabis crime–unlawfully cultivates more than 23 plants; and one count of aiding and abetting first-degree cannabis crime–unlawfully cultivates more than 23 cannabis plants, according to Austin, Minnesota, ABC affiliate KAAL.

Both men were reportedly arrested Thursday and booked into the Faribault County Jail. Online records currently do not show their names.
