He also alleged that Lindsey’s actions were being made in part because he feared the marijuana operation would reduce home values in the area.
Templeton asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.
“I met with members of the Ethics Commission and brought documentation,” Lindsey said. “We came to an agreement that they need to investigate, and I believe this complaint needs to be investigated as well. I want an investigation of the complaint itself.”
Templeton also said Lindsey made photocopies of the property owners’ Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards and permits.
Further investigation is also needed to determine whether Lindsey may have had a conflict of interest when he initiated a lawsuit naming the property owners and others.
