    Photos of Grow Operation:



    On June 24, 2015, an indoor marijuana grow operation was located by HCFR while extinguishing a fire from a single story structure located at 4408 Perch St. Tampa, Fl. Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office District I deputies arrived and drafted a court authorized search warrant after learning rooms had been converted for the sole purpose of cultivating marijuana. Detectives responded and assisted with the execution of the warrant. Once inside the residence, detectives located one large room which contained fifteen (15) large marijuana plants along with thirteen (13) small marijuana plants. TECO responded and located an illegal electricity connection providing unmetered electricity to the residence. Crime Scene also responded and conducted a forensic investigation. The marijuana had a total weight of 306 pounds with an estimated street value of $765,000.00. Several suspects have been identified and future arrests are forthcoming, pending further investigation.
