Witness Alerts Deputies to Suspicious Material Dumped at Landfill, Follows U-Haul

BROOKSVILLE – Thanks to the vigilance of a concerned citizen, Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating the dumping of a possible marijuana grow operation at the Northwest Solid Waste Management Facility, located near US-98 and the Suncoast Parkway.

Earlier this afternoon, deputies responded to the landfill where they located a large pile of PVC pipes, insulation, and lumber, consistent with materials used to build a grow operation.

According to our sources, a witness observed several men removing the material from a U-Haul truck and dumping it into the construction waste section of the landfill. But the witnesses didn’t stop there. After the men finished dumping the material he followed them along the Suncoast Parkway until law enforcement caught up with them at the exit ramp to County Line Road.

It is not known if deputies discovered evidence inside the truck that may lead to charges at this time.

Landfill employees were asked not to comment regarding the suspicious dumping.

We will bring more on this story if additional information comes available.

  • The only reason marijuana is illegal today is because of the big pharmaceutical companies. They are developing a synthetic drug named Marinol that mimics marijuana and they are close to releasing it to the public. To me marijuana is way better and healthier than someone treating pain with Oxycodone. Just saying. Smoked it when I was a kid and I turned out ok. I own a home, have a great job and haven’t missed a day of work in years.

  • Sherry, you had a very good point. It is quite possible these two guys were cleaning out some rental property. This stuff may very well have been left or just abandoned. Or maybe it was their stuff and decided they didn’t want to get caught, or maybe they were tipped of that they were the next bust upcoming. Follow up Tom.

    • Oh but crazy b used to smoke the stuff and maybe still does. I know this as the truth, having known her for a long, long time.
      So many cops go into that career to hide their own crimes. I’m just saying.

  • Itsmeagin your so funny im on my knees with your mom remember im on the streets everyday looking for people like you

    Sunday, 14 August 2016, 11:56 am
    • Ah hell nah. If you’re on your knees with my mom, you’re no longer alive, knucklehead. Every time I see you on the streets…you need to be out there looking for people like yourself…who also have romantic romps while on duty. Is that prostitution, or fraud? You married that dude after getting him fired and now you’re on your knees with another one who thinks he has “Powers”. Most deputies are proud to wear their uniforms…you on the other hand seem to like to take yours off.
      Skank, merely a skank is all you are and all you have ever been.

      Sunday, 14 August 2016, 12:57 pm
  • Be careful out there people. This is Hernando country and there are a lot of “get off my lawn” older people who love to snitch on anything and everything. I guess that is their view of “making America great again”.

    Sunday, 14 August 2016, 11:17 am
  • I get the whole see something say something deal. but this is alittle over the top. Its in the trash, so IF IT was part of a grow house it isn’t any more. Be thankful and move on. I’m sure the local leo’s have more important things to do. Like worry about a grow house that is in operation.

    Sunday, 14 August 2016, 9:31 am
  • Yup the stupid cops go after these people but let the ones get away who threw a dead body in the landfill. Good job cops…..NOT!

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 9:18 pm
    • meth and marijuana are not even comparable. i dont smoke it, probably never will but you might want to research it before you start mashing that keyboard thingy.. it does great things like help children from having seizures that cause life threatening permanent harm and has actually been shown to cause cancer remission in multiple studies. guess how many people died from it.. no one.ever. more people die from aspirin. Big pharma, alcohol industries, and lobby groups paid off by corrupt business are the biggest opponents towards cannabis. I wonder why.. and again I dont get high, i dont even drink coffee, alcohol and never smoked a cigarette. Im a total health Tired of people with this reefer madness mentality. Its 2016, people should be a little more educated.

      Sunday, 14 August 2016, 1:41 pm
  • How do you know there was no probable cause for the stop? Were you there?

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 9:05 pm
    • nonsense like this happens all the time. the doctrine wouldnt exist with out case law and prior incidents. unless tom is giving us a bunch of bs which i doubt, it is what it is. look im pro law enforcement 100 percent but lets be honest. marijuana is a cash cow. over half the inmate population for drugs are marijuana. the majority of all cash and assets ie cars, boats, homes, property etc seized is marijuana related. war on marijuana is a huge huge business and nearly 90 percent of marijuana arrests are a very tiny amount. ie a joints worth. I have no interest in the plant but rational thinking is my thing. Our own government has it listed as a schedule 1 drug which by definition has to be proven to have no medical value yet our own government owns the rights to multiple medical patents on the medicinal value of cannabis. it all comes down to money and politics. Id rather see tax revenue coming in than being funneled to huge violent cartels. Marijuana is a big factor for job security for many people. ok aside from my rant im sure it wouldnt be the first oops in the history of traffic stops. dont be a blind sheep .

      Saturday, 13 August 2016, 11:05 pm
      • Hey know nothing maybe at the dump the cops ran their little what drug is it test and popped positive. That gives them probable cause.

        Saturday, 13 August 2016, 11:57 pm
        • Ran tests on the garbage? Completely laughable. I agree with Food. There was no reason to invade these peoples privacy and violate their rights just because someone assumed this was grow equipment. Medicinal marijuana is very beneficial and the cops, big PHarma and others don’t want it legalized due to it being such a huge cash cow. You’d be surprised who all smokes, eats or vaporizes the stuff, for recreational purposes. Lawyers, doctors, cops, judges and those who are ill need it, instead of using the toxin pills that the government is paid to push.

          Sunday, 14 August 2016, 11:33 am
        • you might want to think more about your screen name there buddy. you watch too much hollywood nonsense. the vehicle already left the area. the burden of proof would be a specific link to that trash. also pvc pipe would not test positive for you know the active substance in marijuana not pvc that would run water.. you are probably up there with the person i heard over the radio yelling about a trespass and the woman wanted the sheriffs aid to run a spectrum analyzer on the ground to locate footprints of the people that cut through her yard. just bc you seen something on tv doesnt mean its real.. smh.. people people. common sense isnt so common.

          Sunday, 14 August 2016, 1:32 pm
  • lol even if they found dead people from that stop the sheriff wouldnt be able to prosecute. this is speculation and assumption. there is zero probable cause for that stop. anything from this would be fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine. a first month law student would be able to tear any case built on that into pieces in seconds. i have way more than these people have and I grow lettuce fruit and vegetables. if i throw away pvc pipe, fhp and sheriffs office.. any law enforcement.. have zero probable cause to initiate a traffic stop. Im laughing at this one. search and seizure is out of the question of anything beyond now.. you pull over a vehicle over with zero p.c. and find anything linked to any crime its a all inadmissible. doesnt matter if i buy truck load of grow equipment and have the latest hightimes magazine and cultivating cannabis 101 book on my dash. you pull me over for that the law offices of Kanwe Skrewya and Howe will be laughing all the way to the bank..

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 8:33 pm
  • Its WEED for God’s sake, natural , grows in the ground all by itself! Go after the meth makers that threaten neighborhoods with risk of death by explosion!

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 7:57 pm
  • At least they were dumping their trash properly, as required. Maybe they were just cleaning out a vacant rental property, or something. Let’s not be so quick to judge.

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 7:55 pm
  • No freaking comment

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 6:41 pm
  • This is how Communism survives….Live and let live…it’s trash!

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 6:28 pm
  • Looks like trash to me. Where’s the grow lights. Pots to grow stuff in. The pumps for irrigation. Tom where’s the follow up. What about that meth dealer who got arrested.

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 6:07 pm
  • Sprinklers

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 6:01 pm
  • Why would the “concerned citizen” care about that? Doesn’t he have anything better to do then worry about some weed. On top of that it sounds like he is just looking for something to call the cops about. Insulation and pvc piping are used for lots of things. I would hate to be in line at the grocery store in front of him. I wouldn’t want to be accused of making meth because I bought some drain-o.

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:45 pm
  • Really because o ly a grow house requires tjose type of materials?

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:39 pm
  • WTF? Let’s hunt down the meth..if anything lmao wow

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:36 pm
  • Hilarious…I used to grow weed…now I dont…so take me to jail….goodness what has become of people…

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:30 pm
  • I’ve always wondered why there are so many cars/trucks with Pasco tags at the Eastside Dump. Don’t you have to live/pay Property Taxes in Hernando to use the HC dump?

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:28 pm
  • snitches.

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:21 pm
  • you’re kidding, right? now we can’t even dump trash without somebody turning us in to the cops?!! SMH

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:16 pm
  • Seems pretty wimpy

    Saturday, 13 August 2016, 5:03 pm
