Children living at alleged marijuana grow in Hydesville
HYDESVILLE- Two young children were living in the Hydesville home allegedly used to grow and cultivate marijuana. According to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office a two year old was found inside the master bedroom next to dried marijuana plants and an assault rifle.
When authorities arrived on scene they detained a 28 year old woman who was walking to the residents and said she had dropped off her child at school across the street. When authorities served a search warrant on the home they located Christopher Michael Carr, 27, and found her two year old daughter inside the home.
During the investigation authorities allegedly found 176 growing marijuana pants approximately 2’ tall being grown indoors in a detached shop area, four pounds of processed marijuana and approximately ten pounds of drying marijuana plants, approximately $3000 cash, scales, along with a Russian SKS and Mac-90 Assault rifle, two high capacity magazines, and a loaded 40 caliber semi-auto handgun. The couple allegedly told deputies they were growing marijuana for medicinal purposes.
Carr was arrested and the Sheriff's Office will be seeking a search warrant to arrest the 28 year old woman. Child Welfare Services responded to the residence with the Planning Department who determined the electrical wiring inside the home was not permitted.
