Marijuana grow house destroyed by fire

| Jul 5, 2013 | Drug Crime, Drug Violations, marijuana

A Lehigh Acres marijuana grow house that was busted last week was destroyed by a fire overnight. Fire crews say it happened around 1 a.m. Friday at 4307 E. 15th Street. The Fire Marshall is surveying the damage and the cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.

According to reports, deputies got a tip about the home being a possible grow house just last week. Deputies got a search warrant and discovered 75 marijuana plants growing within 4 rooms that were converted into a full grow operation. Deputies arrested Jesus Gabriel Mercado Olavarria and Eduardo Cruz-Rangel. Cruz admitted he moved in 3 months prior specifically to run a grow house.
