104 Marijuana Plants Recovered In Port St. Lucie Grow House Bust

Police on Tuesday arrested a woman and turned up 104 marijuana plants at a home investigators say had been converted into an indoor marijuana grow house.

Port St. Lucie police showed up to serve a search warrant Tuesday at the home in the 800 block of Southeast Proctor Lane. Detectives knocked, got no answer and used a battering ram to get inside.

Police reports state that,"There were cultivation supplies in the converted bedrooms and modifications to the rooms to facilitate the indoor cultivation of the cannabis plants."

In total, 104 marijuana plants were recovered.

The plants ranged from small juvenile plants to those five to six feet tall. The plants were growing in two specially modified rooms, while one room appeared to be used for drying.

The total weight of the marijuana seized was about 25 pounds.

The occupant of the home was arrested on charges including cultivation of cannabis, possession of cannabis greater than 20 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking in cannabis.
