A new landlord brought an end to a big marijuana business in Ellicott City. Howard County police said the home was the largest indoor growing operation they have ever discovered.
In a search, police found more than 600 marijuana plants, along with all of the lighting, watering and ventilation systems necessary to keep the plants healthy and hidden. Along with packaged pot for standard sale, they also found evidence that a concentrated form of pot was being packaged for dabbing.
Police found the operation after a new owner who bought the home at auction saw a suspicious van. When police rolled up, they could smell pot from the driveway.
Arrested were Casey Fowler and Daniel Simms, who face multiple counts of drug charges.
