Plant City, Florida Couple Arrested After $60K Worth Of Hydroponic Plants Found In Grow House
Hillsborough County deputies went to a Plant City home where they found a 3-week-old child in the middle of a hydroponic growing operation, according to a sheriff’s statement.
Deputies made the bust on April 13 at 2203 Bruton Road. When they arrived, they recognized the strong odor of tweeds. They also spotted a box of fresh clippings in a box on the front porch.
After obtaining a warrant, they found 37 hydroponic plants valued at about $60,000. They also found tweeds stored in the infant’s bedroom, according to the statement.
The baby was removed by Child Protective Services.
Christopher Holbrooks, 30, and Angela Holbrooks, 34, were arrested and charged with Manufacture of “That Good”, Possession of “Tweeds”, Possession for Purpose of Manufacturing and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
“We’re also investigating charges with the child,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Carter.
The nursery served double purposes apparently… SMH @ this — don’t be drying your hydro out in the room where the baby has to live and breathe.
