Lindsey said he welcomes the investigation.
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 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.
