almost 100 pot plants and still growing
Monday night the owner of a Kingwood storage facility contacted Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable Rowdy Hayden and reported a odor of marijuana. Constable responded to the scene and he too detected the strong odor of marijuana.
A narcotics dog was requested to the scene and was able to locate two of the units as the source of the odor. A search warrant was drawn up and just after 2 a.m. the search warrant was executed.
Once inside deputies found two separate grow operations. One within a home made plywood box. A second one was located on a sixteen foot lowboy trailer closed in with plywood. Inside the trailer were lights, an air conditioning and an elaborate watering system.
The system was completely dismantled and removed.
Close to 100 plants were seized. Deputies know who was renting the facility and are currently looking for him.
The second storage unit next door yielded several vehicles and motorcycles.
No value has been set on the plants as of yet. The investigation is continuing.
