Marshall County broke up a sophisticated marijuana growing operation.
The Marshall County Drug Enforcement Unit, with the help of surrounding agencies, busted the marijuana growing operation at a home on Brashers Chapel Road in Guntersville.
Commander Ricky Phillips says a pool house was turned into a pot house.
Brian and Elizabeth Black were arrested and charged with manufacturing a controlled substance.
Commander Phillips says the growing system was complete with a watering and lighting system.
He says the lights were set up on tracks to simulate the sun rising and setting.
"It was a pretty elaborate operation they had set up there. Probably the most sophisticated we've seen in a long time here in Marshall County. We've had a couple of other instances. But they really don't measure up or add up to what we found there," says Commander Phillips.
There were 2 children who lived in the home. They were turned over to DHR.
I hope the DHR enjoys the bounty they get paid for kidnapping these children.
