Man Wanted for Multiple Felony Warrants Found Growing Marijuana Garden, INDIAN SPRINGS, June 25, 2008 - On June 16, 2008, while trying to apprehend a wanted suspect for multiple felony warrants, Polk County Sheriff Lieutenant Andy Lowrie and other Deputies came across his marijuana garden in Indian Springs that was being grown by the suspect. The suspect, Kenneth Gene Keegan, 24, of Indian Springs was wanted on felony warrants for failure to report address change as a sex offender, and violation of a restraining order. As deputies were searching a wooded area on Ole Long Pull across from a residence Keegan had been staying in, Sheriff's Deputies found Keegan's tent along side 45 marijuana plants. The plants ranged in size from approximately 39 inches to 4 feet in height. Lieutenant Lowrie collected the pot plants and they were sent to the Department of Public Safety Crime Lab for analysis. Another warrant was issued for Keegan's arrest for felony possession of marijuana to go with his two other warrants. Keegan was not found at that location however. 5 days later, Keegan was found at another residence in Indian Springs by an alert Deputy Chris Lima. Lima was able to apprehend Keegan without incident. Keegan was promptly taken to Polk County Jail and booked in.
