Templeton asserted that Lindsey went to several county departments searching for possible illegalities at the property.
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.
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.
Commission staff will investigate the matter and will hold a public meeting on Jan. 25, 2019.
Lindsey said he welcomes the investigation.
