Pot growing operation found in Near South Lincoln
The Fugitive Task Force arrested two teens after making the discovery of marijuana plants.
Lancaster County Sheriff's Captain Ben Houchin says the Fugitive Task Force went to 2433 E Street #5 Wednesday morning to serve two warrants. Houchin says they noticed a bright light coming from one of the bedrooms. Officers found an active marijuana grow operation.
A 14-year-old boy and 18-year-old Dakota Gaffney were arrested for manufacturing a controlled substance. The 14-year-old was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center. Gaffney was taken to the Lancaster County Jail.
Houchin says a woman who answered the door, the boy's mother, was not arrested.
