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.

  • They should change the name of this town from Spring Hill to Crime Hill because they is so much crime here,. The jail must be packed, Spring Hill sounds like such a nice place to move to until you’ve been here awhile like I have and experience what’s really going on here, Unreal. Sorry I moved here. Too bad we lost our local newspaper but thank goodness for Real News Real Fast. If you know someone thinking of moving to Spring Hill because it sounds like such a nice place to move to tell them that they should think again.

    • Don’t know what your talking about, this area is low crime, one of the lowest in Florida, and one of the lowest in the South!

      Thursday, 19 March 2015, 5:40 pm
  • @concernedcitizengator, Why would the math matter? If they were going to (like sell, per you) anything else with it, why would they disclose the correct ammount of it. (325lbs) 325 lbs is 325 matter how much it’s worth! I also think it’s funny that you know all the value in this matter…What are you in this ring? Go fly a kite!!! Thank god this is off the streets!!! The streets my children walk!

    Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 1:37 pm
    • You fly the kite, the guys right, its worth a lot more, and he has the right to point it out!

  • If it were low quality mrs bee, at the lowest it would be $50 per ounce, like seriously. That’s still well over their estimate. It sounds like a developing story because the numbers make no sense. Also the pictures made it look impressive (the quality that is).

    Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 10:54 am
  • I am not a user but also have a family member who also lives in Colorado. He explained it depends in the amount of THC in the marijuana which determines its value. If its low quality, it is low value. I don’t think anyone is trying hide anything here, It sounds like these idiots made crappy weed.

  • Gator is right that is well over a million dollars worth

    Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 7:57 am
  • Just let us have 6 plants and the sellers are out of business

    Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 7:46 am
  • Ok so here’s what I’m missing from this story: Where did you get those numbers? Here’s what I’m seeing, if there were 325 pounds of marijuana (maximum) that would be the same as 5200 ounces of marijuana. In Colorado (my family lives there) the average price per ounce of legal marijuana ranges between $150-250. So do the math, that would be (in the fairest circumstances) well over a million dollars. But even if it were sold for less than that, lets say $100/ounce that’s still $520000. So what I’m getting at is, what are they going to do with the excess? Sell it on the streets? give it to the DEA? Because well the math doesn’t add up and I smell a very smelly fish. Thanks.

  • There were big corporations already pre qualifying people for marijuana distribution here in Fl under the assumption that Fl would legalize marijuana. I am not a user of marijuana at all, but it does have it’s pros and cons.

    Monday, 16 March 2015, 10:45 pm
  • So being marijuana was 3% off being voted legal, would their charges be reduced once it is legal if they’re still awaiting trial? They were just heavily prepared for something that didn’t happen. This is just a question people, so dont get bent out of shape over it.

  • Nice place to live, lmao. I lived there 22 years and left 4 years ago. Best move I ever made. Home invasions, meth labs, grow houses, armed robberies, armed burglaries, drive by shootings, murders, yea, just a lovely place to live. Everywhere has crime but Spring Hill is a small hub. Once a neighborhood goes bad, it never goes back.

  • I’ll never quite understand why guys who decide to become marijuana growers think they can steal power from the electric companies. It’s not bad enough that its still illegal to grow weed, but then they break another law like trying to screw WREC! That’s not happening.
