Marijuana House Raided, 4 Suspects Arrested

LAS VEGAS - Four people are under arrest after police raided a northwest valley home and discovered a grow house. Detectives seized a large number of marijuana plants from the home near 215 and Hualapai Way.

When police went inside that home, they say they found 100 marijuana plants, which amounts to about 100 pounds of pot. Detectives boxed up the plants and removed them.

Police arrested 28-year-old Douglas Wright, 31-year-old Christopher Sobarnia, 41-year-old Theodore Wachter and 32-year-old Bryan Parsons. The four were charged with sale and possession of marijuana and conspiracy.

Neighbors say they don't think anybody was actually living in the home. One woman says she was surprised to find out what happened after coming home from dinner.

"To do a hundred pounds and not even know what's going on right underneath your nose is scary, especially having a one-and-a-half-year-old," said neighbor Kristina Dollard. "We know our neighbors. We're very close knit with them and to have that going on is scary."

Metro says this is the first hydroponic grow house bust of the year. Hydroponic means the plants are grown without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in water.

The street value of the 100 pounds of pot is an estimated $500,000.
