A routine investigation into a child custody complaint resulted in the seizure of 17 pounds of marijuana in Bath on Tuesday, police said.

A Bath police detective went to 5 Bumpy Hill Road at about 2:55 p.m. Tuesday. While there, the detective smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana. The residents, Joseph Plummer and Alison Hartill, ultimately showed the detectives a massive amount of pot.

Some of the marijuana was already packaged in plastic bags, while a larger amount was held in a large plastic storage tote.

Both Plummer and Hartill were issued summonses charging unlawful possession of Schedule Z drugs, a Class C felony. They are both due in West Bath District Court on Nov. 22.
