OSAGE, Iowa – Charges have now been dismissed against the final two defendants in what authorities called a marijuana-growing operation.

Karyl O’Connor, Amanda O’Connor, and Shane O’Connor, all of Toeterville, were arrested in April 2017 after law enforcement searched their home and claimed to find baggies of marijuana, seeds, growing chemicals, and equipment used to make and sell the drug.

Shane O’Connor, 28, eventually pleaded guilty to one count of prohibited acts and was sentenced to one year of informal probation and a $625 fine.

Shortly after Shane O’Connor was sentenced, the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office dismissed the charges against Karyl, 54, and Amanda, 27, “in the interest of justice.”
