The Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force has recently uncovered more than a million dollars' worth of marijuana. It was all reportedly owned by one man, who was growing it in two separate houses that were located within blocks of each other. All in all, there were 234 marijuana plants, as well as growth materials like lights, fans, scales, and water pumps. These instruments are frequently used for the manufacture and sale of marijuana.
Neighbors say that they had no idea that the manufacturing was going on because usually the area tended to be peaceful. During the raid last week, however, this was not the case, as many agents and investigators surrounded the houses to disassemble the sophisticated marijuana operation. According to ABC News, the suspect has been charged with possession of marijuana by Fort Bend County police, remaining in their custody on $50,000 bond. If convicted, he could face felony penalties.
The owner of one of the houses has claimed that she had no knowledge of the operation and the suspect was quiet, respectful, and timely with his rent payments. She didn't even know about the arrest until news stations alerted her to the issue.
