Templeton asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.


Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.

According to a report by the Government Ethics Commission, Mark Owenby and Michelle Page purchased the property in December 2016. The couple began developing a medical marijuana growing operation, including constructing a large greenhouse.


Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.



A complaint was filed on July 17 by William Templeton of Albany, on behalf of himself and several family members associated with the marijuana operation at Butte Creek Estates.
