    On December 18, 2013, detectives in the HCSO Special Investigation Division, Tactical Intelligence Team along with HCSO Patrol District 1 deputies armed with a search warrant responded to 612 Leisure Ave in Tampa, after an anonymous tipster gave details of a marijuana grow operation.

    Upon entry into the home, detectives located two rooms converted for the sole purpose of cultivating marijuana. A total of 27 large marijuana plants and 21 juvenile plants were recovered with a total weight of 130 pounds.

    TECO responded and located an illegal electricity tap and estimated the theft at $4,678.00. Code enforcement responded due to the improper construction and will issue citations at a later date.

    The marijuana has an approximate street value of $100,000.00. Both individuals were arrested at home and booked into the Orient Road Jail with no bond.
