The doublewide mobile home was located at 340 Morris Stevens Road June 6, at approximately 2 p.m. Marijuana plants were found both in the hollowed out doublewide and a shed in back of the house. Sheriff Butch Reece said he is almost positive it would be traced back to the same Miami organization as the house located April 14 on Luke Smith Road.
Investigator Lt. Jimmy Black said they started working on the case Wednesday after receiving information from a local utility company. He said a problem was discovered with the electricity running to the home and when it was checked out the technicians knew something was wrong.
Black said the property was purchased in the late fall of 2013 and the new owner requested the utilities be run underground.
“That was odd because there are no other underground utilities in the area,” the investigator said.
He said the owners of the home were connected to the group who owned two marijuana grow houses in Houston County and that made search warrants possible.
