A 47-year-old Marine Drive apartment dweller was arrested late this afternoon for allegedly growing marijuana plants in his apartment.

Stephen Riordan was arrested after security and maintenance workers discovered the pot-growing operation. They had forcibly entered his flat about 4 p.m. because a water leak was damaging the apartment directly below his. Police were called and charged Riordan with unlawful growing of cannabis and criminal possession of marijuana.
