Deputies Discover Pot, Growing Equipment In Martin County Home

A drug raid in Hamilton has netted deputies with 47 pot plants, equipment to grow pot, a gun and two suspected pot growers in jail.

Charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture, sale or deliver marijuana, and maintaining a dwelling to keep and store controlled substances are Wanda Green and Kenneth Howell.

Martin County deputies say Tuesday night they raided the couple's home on Highway 125 and made the discovery. Deputies say the plants have an estimated value of approximately $47,000, that's based on what each plant could produce over its lifetime.

Bonds for the two have been set at $15,000 and they have a May 19th court date.
