There’s been another Marijuana grow house busted in Las Vegas but this one is different. It was a huge operation and makes it the largest indoor Marijuana grow house busted to date.
Nevada, in particular Las Vegas, is known as being extremely tough with anything that is even remotely related to Marijuana.
Marijuana advocates would like for that to change and envision an atmosphere like Colorado.
Indoor Marijuana grow houses really do pose a problem to the communities they are in. Numerous chemicals are used, electricity is oftentimes tampered with, in an attempt to mask the high usage and there is the very real potential for explosions, due to the toxic chemicals being used.
The Marijuana grow house busted Wednesday in Las Vegas was located in the Southwest part of the valley, on Trickling Stream Circle, near Ft. Apache and Desert Inn Roads.
Over 1,400 plants were found that had a potential value of $4.5 million, plus $30,000 in cash was found at the home.
AT one point, after SWAT officer complained of a smell, a robot was sent into the home in an attempt to identify the source of the irritant.
Two people, a male and female, tried to flee from the home. They were arrested and, so far, police have not been able to identify them, so they are calling them John and Jane Doe. They appear to both be middle aged or older and of Asian descent.
Neighbors have said that, on occasion, they did smell Marijuana coming from the home, but had no idea that the home was being used as a Marijuana grow house.
They stood by in amazement as items were removed from the home, by officers wearing protective gear.
In retrospect, they recounted that they saw the couple a few times in the garage of the home, and after seeing the contents being emptied out of the home, they now understood why they were inside the garage rather than in the house.
So far this most recent Marijuana grow house busted in Las Vegas has set a record.
