GLENS FALLS -- A Glens Falls man faces a number of charges after police who went to his home because he was wanted on a warrant found a marijuana growing operation and prescription painkillers for which he didn't have a prescription, officials said.

Christopher D. Fudger, 26, was arrested after Glens Falls Police went to his 18 Montcalm home early Friday for Hudson Falls Police, who had an arrest warrant for him on a harassment charge, Glens Falls Police Sgt. Chris Eggleston said.

A woman who answered the door told police they could look for him, and as they did they found a room where four marijuana plants were growing, Eggleston said.

The plants were growing in a room next to one where two 7-month old twins sleep, which prompted police to file misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child and unlicensed growing of cannabis and a non-criminal count of unlawful possession of marijuana, Eggleston said.

Police also found Vicodin pills for which he did not have a prescription, which resulted in a misdemeanor count of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.

Fudger was located in a back room of the home, police said.

He was being held pending arraignment later Friday morning. Glens Falls Police Officer James Gallante made the arrest.
