Don’t Report a Home Invasion if You’re Growing 110 Weed Plants in Your Spare Bedroom

A Flagler County man who reported a home invasion was arrested Monday when deputies found more than 100 marijuana plants growing at his house, they said.

Shane Lawrence, 54, was arrested about 4 a.m. on charges of cultivating marijuana, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Lawrence told deputies that two men had broken into his home on Fleming Court in Palm Coast and tried to rob him, the Sheriff's Office said.

Fleming gave deputies permission to search inside, they said. That's when investigators said they found a spare bedroom and a bathroom set up as grow rooms with lights and pot-growing chemicals.

Deputies confiscated 110 marijuana plants. They could have produced 55 pounds with a street value of $44,000, investigators said.
