Agents net ‘hydro’ weed arrests
Two 21-year-old Ruston residents were arrested this week on drug distribution charges after law enforcement agents allegedly uncovered 11 pounds of hydroponic marijuana in their home.
Floyd Wood and Brittany Miller, of 309 E. Colorado Ave., remained in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on Wednesday afternoon with bond to be set.
At around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Lincoln Parish Narcotics Enforcement Team agents reportedly served a search warrant at the residence. Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Stephen Williams said the agents then located the suspected hydroponic marijuana, or a strain of marijuana grown indoors using tubes, filters, water and fertilizers.
