A man taken to a hospital unresponsive Thursday night led investigators to an indoor marijuana grow house at a home in Baker County.
Investigators said they then went to the home of 49-year-old Tony Barber, who took the man to the hospital. When deputies went inside Barber's home on Morris Avenue, they smelled pot and heard fans running.

Deputies said they found 179 pot plants inside the home. They said the plants had a street value of $179,000, the largest Baker County pot bust in recent memory.
Barber was arrested and charged with growing marijuana within 1,000 feet of a church and marijuana possession. Both are felony charges.
The patient does not face charges. He was unresponsive and flown to St. Vincent's Medical Center on Thursday evening. Deputies said he was still there Friday on a ventilator.
