State police say bond was set at a quarter million dollars each for two operators of a marijuana “grow house” in Wolcott. Members of the Statewide Narcotics Task Force they found two rooms of the house on Manor Lane devoted to some 200 marijuana plants in various stages of growth. Processed marijuana also was found at the scene.
Police say the house was being used exclusively as a grow operation; no one was living there. They say the walls were lined with reflective foil, and two four-foot-high, large capacity charcoal filters were being used to control air quality. High intensity growing lights were connected to electrical timers, and circulating fans and dehumidifiers were in use.
Police charged 37-year-old Eric Bierc and 35-year-old Michelle Bierce of Waterbury with a variety of drug charges.
