Discovery of Marijuana Grow House Leads to Arrest of Cuban National
SPRING HILL – During a Facebook Live broadcast on Saturday, we reported the discovery of a marijuana grow house on Pagoda Drive, after WREC officials noticed signs of power diversion.
According to Lt. John Cameron with Vice and Narcotics, Detectives entered the home located at 8004 Pagoda Drive and made contact with 32-year-old Danay Rodriguez Aguero. Cameron says Aguero is of Cuban descent and is not a U.S. citizen. Due to a language barrier, a translator was used to request access to the home, which Aguero granted.
Once inside, Detectives discovered a locked room that Aguero did not have access to. Armed with a search warrant, Detectives gained access and located a sophisticated marijuana grow operation. Detectives found separate air handlers and confiscated 19 immature marijuana plants from inside the room.
During the investigation, Detectives learned that Aguero’s boyfriend is an interstate truck driver who is currently en route back from New Jersey. Detectives spoke with the boyfriend who agreed to meet with investigators once he returns to Florida. He also admitted to being the sole person responsible for the marijuana. It is not known at this time if Aguero’s boyfriend is a U.S. citizen or if Investigators have made contact with him since their phone conversation on Saturday.
Aguero was taken into custody and charged with possession and production of Marijuana. Aguero was released Sunday without posting bond, according to jail records.
Neighbors say they were completely unaware of the drug activity inside the home and that the family seemed like a normal people.
Detectives say the home had very little furniture, which is a tell-tale sign of it’s main purpose being that of a drug operation.
