Police Raid St. Charles Apartment for Marijuana Plants
Posted on Jul 20, 2011 in Drugs
On Monday police received a report of marijuana plants inside a St. Charles apartment, and by the end of the day had seized marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, crystal meth, and multiple grow boxes.
They first arrived at the apartment at 2900 St. Charles to find marijuana plants in plain sight. Officers then called the 6th District Narcotics Detectives who arrested Miguel Molina inside the residence. After further investigation detectives ascertained that Molina was storing additional narcotics in a house at 2704 Soniat St.
Between the two houses police seized a hydroponic system for growing marijuana indoors, 17 marijuana plants, 16 jars for growing psychedelic mushrooms, jars of psychedelic mushrooms and marijuana packaged for distribution, 3 vials of crystal meth and a semi-automatic hand gun.
Molina, who is responsible for the entirety of the seized property, is facing a slew of charges easily capable of putting him in jail for a very long time: possession with intent to distribute both marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms, illegal cultivation of marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms, possession of methamphetamine, and illegal possession of firearms with narcotics.
If you or anyone you know has been charged with something a simple as marijuana possession, legal representation is important. Contact Bloom Legal at 504-599-9997 for a legal consultation
