Police Round Up $1 Million Worth of Pot in Three Grow House Raids
Miami-Dade Police were busy last night. Officers conducted three raids of three separate grow houses in the Redland last night and hauled off about $1 million worth of marijuana in the process.
Local 10 reports that 800 pounds of pot was rounded up at a grow house on Southwest 200th Street and 174th Avenue alone. The narcotic bureau broke down a gate to find a house with two rooms turned into a hydroponics lab. 30 plants were found in one room. 25 in the other. The owner of that home managed to escape before police arrived, and they're still searching for suspects.
A second location was busted at 20000 block of SW 160th Street, according to NBC Miami. The third location has not yet been revealed.
All in all about 1400 pounds of pot were seized from the three locations. Some firearms were also confiscated.
Information on any arrests or suspects however have not been released.
