A New Ulm man is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly growing marijuana in his home. 33-year-old Jon George Hansen II was charged with 3 felony controlled substance crimes on Tuesday in Brown County Court after a tip led police to his mobile home in New Ulm’s Traulich Estates over the weekend. New Ulm Police and agents with the Brown-Lyon-Redwood-Renville Drug Task Force reportedly discovered 15 pot plants in various stages of growth in Hansen’s home, as well as materials for growing the plants and 90 grams of harvested marijuana.
