Nearly 200K in Marijuana Discovered Inside Spring Hill Home – Two Charged
SPRING HILL – The Sheriff’s Office says they’ve confiscated over 325 lbs. of Marijuana, valued at nearly $200,000 dollars, from a home located at 189 Oak Lake Drive.
Detectives raided the home last Thursday, after WREC officials notified authorities of possible power diversion activity and complaints from neighbors.
During a search of the home, investigators discovered that the residence had been converted into a high tech marijuana grow operation, with each room serving a specific purpose.
According to officials, it appeared that all of the plants had just been harvested, due to finding a drying room on the north end of the residence. The drying room is where the marijuana is dried (processed to remove the bud from the stems) and prepared for distribution.
Two men were detained and subsequently charged as a result of the investigation.
32-year-old Alain Torres-Guadarrama and 26-year-old Roniel Lugo face numerous cultivation, trafficking and possession charges as well as theft of power, estimated at $4,239.
Guadarrama is held on a $111,000 bond, Lugo is held on a $36,000 bond. Both men remain behind bars at this time.
