Morgan’s Point Drug Bust Nets 339 Marijuana Plants
Police say a Thursday morning raid on a Morgan's Point Resort home led to the discovery of hundreds of marijuana plants.
Officers with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigation Division, and the Morgan’s Point Resort Police Department served a Federal search warrant at a home on Buttercup Loop around 9 AM.
A 27-year-old male was arrested at the scene, and seven pit bull dogs were seized.
According to Morgan's Point PD Chief Fred Churchill, the home contained an elaborate aeroponics setup in several rooms supporting 339 marijuana plants.
Officers seized the plants and growing equipment, along with several boxes of dried marijuana, drug paraphernalia, cash, and several guns. Chief Churchill said some of the guns had been reported stolen and may have been used to commit other crimes.
A joint investigation of the home and the growing operation will continue.
