PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Police on Tuesday arrested a woman and turned up 104 marijuana plants at a home investigators say had been converted into an indoor pot farm, according to an affidavit released Wednesday.
Port St. Lucie police showed up to serve a search warrant Tuesday at the home in the 800 block of Southeast Proctor Lane. Detectives knocked and got no answer and used "breaching tools" to get inside.
Maria G. Vandermark, 45, was detained in the living room and declined to speak with an investigator.
"There were cultivation supplies in the converted bedrooms and modifications to the rooms to facilitate the indoor cultivation of the cannabis plants," the affidavit states.
Officials found 104 marijuana plants and additional pot in the grow rooms.
The home's listed owner is Michael Vandemark, of Miami, according to records accessed Wednesday through the St. Lucie County Property Appraiser's website. Michael Vandemark's last name is spelled with a single "r" on the property appraiser's website, and it wasn't immediately clear whether he has any relationship with the woman arrested at his home.
The total weight of the marijuana seized was about 25 pounds.
Vandermark, of the 800 block of Southeast Proctor Lane, was arrested on charges including cultivation of cannabis, possession of cannabis greater than 20 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking in cannabis.
