A call about a domestic disturbance led them to discover a marijuana grow operation in the house next door, Hillsborough deputies say.
When deputies searched the house a week later, they found 283 pounds of marijuana worth $700,000, deputies said.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded last Friday to a domestic disturbance at a home on Wilkins Road. While investigating the disturbance, a deputy noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the house next door.
The deputy alerted the Marijuana Grow House Task Force, and a search warrant was obtained. On Thursday, deputies searched the house and found the grow operation in a detached garage. Deputies said they seized 15 mature marijuana plants and 39 small marijuana plants.
Deputies found Daniel Alberto Eguiguren-Saroza, 27, of Tampa, on the property and took him into custody. He is facing charges of cultivation of marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, owning/leasing/renting for purposes of trafficking marijuana, grand theft of electricity and possession of drug paraphernalia.
