Marijuana growing bust in Baltimore
Police say they've raided a sophisticated marijuana growing operation in south Baltimore.
City police, working with federal authorities, served a search warrant Monday evening on two adjacent homes. They found 418 "starter" marijuana plants and growing paraphernalia inside.
Two men were arrested: 30-year-old Vincent Davis and 29-year-old Jesse Duffy. They face a variety of drug charges.
Charging documents show the two homes had been converted entirely into an indoor marijuana farm complete with lights, fans and other equipment. Police say the electrical supply to the building had been altered to bypass the meter and provide the power needed to keep all the equipment working.
According to the documents, Davis told police that the growing operation had been functional for about a year and that he and Duffy were in the process of shutting it down because of security concerns.
