The group of Hernando County men who called on the police when a home invasion resulted in their drugs being stolen are now in even more trouble. TampaBay.com is reporting the group, who were already charged with felony cultivation of marijuana, will now face drug trafficking charges. The charges stem from one of the alleged traffickers alerting a Hernando County sheriff’s deputy that a home invasion was in progress at their residence.
When deputies got to the house the suspects said they had been robbed of upwards of five pounds of marijuana. The officers went on to discover 59 marijuana plants and plenty of other evidence of a grow house operation. The suspects were arrested and are in Hernando County jail in lieu of bonds totaling $25,000.
