HOUSTON – Two men were arrested Friday after The Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force uncovered a “sophisticated” marijuana grow house inside a Sugar Land house.
Task Force Agents and the Fort Bend County Regional SWAT team executed a warrant at the residence located in the 3200 block of Summer Bay Drive, following a month-long investigation.
The agents said they found an indoor marijuana operation in five rooms of the residence. Agents located 206 marijuana plants along with indoor growing lights, scales, water pumps, fans, invertors and assorted equipment used for manufacturing, packaging and selling of marijuana, investigators said.
Dong Tien Nguyen, 40, of Sugar Land, and Duyet Nguyen, 41, of Houston, were arrested and booked into the Fort Bend County Jail on first degree felony charges of Possession of Marijuana (greater than 50 pounds, less than 2,000 pounds).
The marijuana seized at the scene had a street value of approximately $824,000.
Both men received bonds of $50,000 and both bailed out of the Fort Bend County Jail on Saturday.
