Metro busts pot grow house and ID theft operation

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police have busted a marijuana grow operation and identity theft lab near Rainbow Boulevard and Hacienda Avenue.

According to police, they found about 100 marijuana plants and some cocaine were found in the home.

"It's just unexpected. We woke up and undercovers, and the trucks here and they're clearing stuff out, it's pretty crazy, and it's pretty scary," Frank Gonzales a resident said.

Frank has lived near the area of the bust for about four years now and he said he didn't associate with the people who recently moved in on the corner.

"It just goes to show you, people, you can't judge a book by it's cover. Some of my mistakes are scars that show, but it's how to present yourself and some of these people present themselves as professionals, and they're not," Frank Gonzales said.

Metro Police said when they walked into 7015 Sombra Way they also found 100 thousand blank drivers licenses with holographic seals and 2,000 blank credit cards. They said all of this was ready for manufacturing.

"It's probably the most I've ever seen, the team that investigates this kind of crime, they responded out here and they were actually very surprised and shocked by the size of this identity theft lab," Lt. Laz Chavez, Metro Police said.

Investigators said the home is a rental and there was significant damage inside.  The man in the home, Dylan Davis was arrested.

Police said the 33-year-old who lives at the home, has prior violent convictions in other states.
