An illegal marijuana grow operation worth an estimated $1.2 million and involving a Cuban syndicate with ties to Florida was busted today by Pueblo County Sheriff’s Investigations/Narcotics officers with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Sheriff’s detectives seized 340 plants, an estimated 70 pounds of dried product, thousands of dollars in cash, thousands of dollars in grow equipment and made five arrests after executing search warrants at six Pueblo West homes, the largest such operation conducted by the sheriff’s office to date.

Sheriff’s detectives received a tip of a possible illegal marijuana grow syndicate operating out of six homes in Pueblo County. While investigating the tip, detectives obtained information to ascertain there was probable cause to believe marijuana was being grown illegally at the residences, all in Pueblo West. Detectives, working with the DEA, executed search warrants at the homes today and discovered a large number of marijuana plants in various stages of growth in five of those residences. The sixth home where a search warrant was executed did not have an illegal grow.
