Police Raid Suspected Marijuana Growhouse in Miami Shores

UPDATED: 2:18 PM EST

Local authorities raided a suspected hydroponic marijuana grow house in Miami Shores early this morning.

According to NBC 6 Miami, one person was arrested.

The arrest happened at 269 NE 104th St, and is about two blocks away from St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church School and Miami Shores Elementary.

According to WSVN, local police carried out a large black bag full of what officials said was drugs.

The street is typically quiet and not used to police activity.

Victor O’Harriz has lived behind the house in question for over 10 years and said that he never really noticed anything weird happening there.

“Everything is quiet around here all the time,” O’Harriz said. “It’s strange but we’re in a new era and things can happen even in the best neighborhoods.

The street is back open to vehicular traffic after being shut down for multiple hours.

And an orange notice saying that the home is unsafe for inhabitance has been placed on a front window.

Miami Shores police referred requests for comment to the Miami-Dade Police department as they are handling the case.
