Indoor Pot Operation Found

A marijuana growing operation has been found at a home in Beaufort County.

Jeremy McHargue of Hudson Farm Avenue is charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Inside the home on Highway 33 West, deputies say they found a small indoor marijuana grow operation that contained grow lights, an electrical timer and 19 small marijuana plants. At McHargue's home deputies say they found a small amount of marijuana, blue prints for Hydro grow and electrical grow lights.

The man's bond was set at $5,000.

    I can NOT beleive MY tax money was wasted on this petty bust and I do mean petty. I'm sure the law enforcement needed an 18 wheeler to haul all the confiscation away.Why dosent the law go after REAL criminals,instead of wasting tax money on something so petty? I guess Beaufort county is in need of an over haul on law enforcement, you know? LIKE real CRIME fighters!

    To: Whole Truth & Kelly: The "handicapped" man will be charged. As I said before, let law enforcement do their job. You both seem to know alot about the situation, but trust me, I know just as much as you do. The person you are refering to admits his wrong doing and is waiting to face the consequences. Don't assume there has been any "special" treatment. Check his criminal history and see what you find. GUARANTEE you it will not match that of Mr. McHargue. It is really disturbing that you all want to throw blame around and say that Mr. McHargue has changed his life, however he was in possession of pot. If you think Mr. McHargue has been wrongly accused, I will ask you again to do your homework. Ask him what lead to his arrest and what he did BEFORE the bust to contribute to the grow room. Enough said....figure it out!!!!! Both of these men are wrong!!!! Don't paint a pretty picture of Mr. McHargue and throw the other person under the bus!!!

    The whole truth is right, Mr. McHargue has done alot in the past 10 years to change his life! He is a very good person and father! I want to know also why the man that lived in the house is not being mentioned? I guess because he is handicapped and is getting some kind of leniency that the rest of us dont get. God forbid they send the guilty man who is handicapped to jail. Guess they have to blame someone! I also want to know why Mr. McHargue was handcuffed and took to his house with only the possesion of less than a Quarter? BCSO needs to charge the real person that committed the crime instead of trying to make a good man look bad!

    To real truth: My homework is done and correct. I never said Mr. McHargue wasnt doing anything wrong. He does smoke pot and was pulled and caught in possession of 3 grams of pot. When found the police ASSUMED the marijuana he had he obtained from the residence he had just left. On that assumption the police searched the house Mr McHargue had just left(illegal search?). They found a grow room and the home owner said he had nothing to do with it and it was all Mr McHargues's. YEAH RIGHT!! Mr McHargue has a shady past so I guess b/c of that the police took the homeowners story as fact. Mr McHargue does have a past not to be proud of, but he has done alot in the last couple of yrs to lead a positive life. And anyone who wants to talk negatively about smoking marijuana, I hope you don't have a drink or take pills to relax. Because BOTH along with most other drugs are more harmful and cause many more problems than marijuana ever will!

    The previous maintaining was for a joint and scales in 1995.He has one cocain charge and has 3 felony charges in that one arrest in 2001.The house they found the "grow" in was not his,there were no children there,and the person who lived there has not been charged?

    Lets see, wrong place wrong time huh? Lets try this, according the Dept of Corrections Website he has been convicted of 5 felonies, has ALREADY been convicted previously with maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of distributing a controlled substance, Trafficking Cocaine (TWICE), and more. But yes, I'm sure it's just a case of wrong place wrong time, sucks to have his luck. Sounds to me like the dogs rolled over.

    They grew hemp and a lot of farms were forced to grow it as well, no one said they smoked it even though that is a possibility. If you have time though, check out some facts on marijuana as they may change your perception of it....

    i think if our founding fathers grew marijuana on their farms it was because it was before it was ILLEGAL to do so.

    Concerned Citizen...George Washington and Jefferson grew hemp. Try smoking hemp and getting high. I do it agree with you..they have bigger fish to fry.
