BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (FOX5) -
Following the bust of an illegal marijuana bust in Bullhead City, AZ, last week, the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team raided two grow operations this week yielding more than 400 marijuana plants.
The first bust took place on Wednesday. Officers confiscated approximately 175 plants from the home of Edwin Harry Rapp III. Police said Rapp and his wife were issued medical marijuana cards but that the number of plants seized far outnumbers the 12 plants each the authorization allows one to cultivate.
Narcotic detectives next moved in on an operation in a home occupied by Gary Lee Wilcox, 54, and his wife, Rebeca Wilcox, 61.
The couple permitted officers to view their grow operation, which police described as organized and sophisticated, containing water lines and grow lights.
Police seized approximately 250 plants from the house and $18,000 worth of grow equipment. Police also found four pounds of marijuana and a small amount of methamphetamine.
Jesus Garcia, 57, was staying at the house and was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and four guns. He faces charges for all three.
Rebeca Wilcox was cited and released for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Gary Wilcox was arrested and booked into Mohave County Jail in Kingman, AZ, for possession of marijuana for sale, possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.
