67 Pot Plants Removed from Miami Grow House

Miami Police arrested an older man who walked with a cane after his home was raided as a grow house.

Police said the home, located near the intersection of NW 61st Avenue and 2nd Street, contained 67 marijuana plants. Neighbors said the couple who lived at the home was older, neither worked, and the woman had recently died.

As FPL workers shut off power to the home, neighbors were upset about what could have happened with the grow house so close.

“It’s just scary. It’s unbelievable that somebody can be that stupid,” said neighbor Anna Acosta. “If you see the street, you see all the houses are right next to each other. It’s just scary.”

Miami Police said a tip led them to the grow house Wednesday.
