Miami police find marijuana grow house hidden under doghouse


Lazara Lopez and Julio Valdes were charged with drug possession and trafficking, according to CBS Miami.

A marijuana grow house under a doghouse may land someone in the big house.

Florida police acted Monday night on an anonymous tip that led them to a home in west Miami-Dade where they said they found a doghouse covering a crawl space that led them to about 64 plants and 50 pounds of marijuana, CBS Miami reported.

The space was described as too small for an adult to stand. The electrical work was so poor, police wondered how the house didn't explode prior to the discovery.

Police also found evidence of a cockfighting ring in the back of the house with both live and dead roosters, the report said.

Julio Valdes and Lazara Lopez were arrested and reportedly face charges ranging from drug possession and trafficking within 1,000 feet of a school. Bail was reportedly set at $43, 000 and they need to prove they can come up with the funding from legal sources.
