Indoor marijuana farm found at Sugar Land house
SUGAR LAND, TX -- Authorities say they've uncovered a sophisticated marijuana growing operation at a house in Sugar Land, and now two people are under arrest.
During the past month, agents with the Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force investigated a home in the 3200 block of Summer Bay Drive. On Friday, authorities moved in with a search warrant and found an indoor marijuana operation being conducted in five rooms of the house. Agents reportedly located 206 marijuana plants, along with indoor growing lights, scales, water pumps, fans, invertors and assorted equipment used for manufacturing, packaging and selling of marijuana.
The marijuana seized at the scene had a street value of approximately $824,000.
Dong Tien Nguyen, 40, of Sugar Land, and Duyet Nguyen, 41, of Houston, were arrested and booked into the Fort Bend County Jail on first degree felony charges of possession of marijuana. Both men received bonds of $50,000 and both bailed out of the Fort Bend County Jail on Saturday.
