Marijuana Bust

Martin County Sheriff John Kirk stumbled upon a massive marijuana operation when he smelled it while driving by a home.

Kirk says about 150 marijuana plants were found growing in a trailer that had been made into a greenhouse. He says it was fully stocked with a water system, a ventilation system and heat lamps.

Mardy Mollett Jr. and Pamela Blevins now face charges of trafficking and cultivating marijuana.

Kirk says Mollett and Blevins lived in an apartment above a garage next door where they were able to keep a close eye on the plants with the use of a security system.
