The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office uncovered a marijuana grow house in the Plantation subdivision of Tampa on Sunday.
More than fifty-five (55) marijuana plants averaging four (4) to five (5) feet tall were found in the home at 11313 Hollyglen Drive, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies also found lighting and growing equipment which will probably lead to a Felony charge of Cultivation of Marijuana.
On Sunday evening, deputies were in the process of dismantling the equipment and seizing the marijuana plants and growing paraphernalia.
A 60-year-old man was taken into custody at the home, the Sheriff’s Office said.
He was not immediately identified.
