LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police say they busted a marijuana grow house Thursday in a southwest Las Vegas neighborhood after a tip about a strong odor coming from the home.
Police served a search warrant on the house Thursday morning.
The home is located in the 6200 block of W. Levi avenue near Jones Boulevard and Cactus Avenue. According to Metro Police, Robert Hoier, 30, who was renting the home, was taken into custody and around 100 marijuana plants were seized.
The home is near three schools and police are concerned that kids were buying drugs from the home because some of the marijuana was ready for sale.
Hoier is facing charges which include possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.
Detectives said the drug operation caused significant damage to the home. It will be up to the homeowner pay for all the repairs.
