Pasco County deputies busted a marijuana grow house thanks to Progress Energy employees.
Utility workers discovered someone had tapped the electrical service lines in Port Richey. The tap allowed additional electricity to flow freely to the home at 7117 Gulf Highlands Drive.
Progress Energy reports the account for the home had been active since August 16, 2016. The company notified the Pasco County Sheriff's Office the home could potentially be a grow house.
Detectives responded and secured the house. A judge signed off on a search warrant which deputies executed.
Marijuana plants weree found growing inside one room of the house that was modified to help speed their growth.
Deputies seized a total of 114 marijuana plants that weighed nearly 88 pounds. Detectives are working to identify and arrest the people who set up the grow house.
Progress Energy says it has not yet been able to determine how much electricity was stolen.
